Chris is a student in the Bachelor of Health Sciences Program pursuing a minor in Globalization Studies. From his childhood experience moving between different countries, he developed a broad base of interests covering topics in global health, mental wellness, and political sciences. Chris hopes to empower people who do not have a strong voice in their communities, with a particular interest in engaging those experiencing poverty.
During his time at the Forum, Chris looks forward to learning about high-level, community-wide collaboration across multiple disciplines. His role as a Forum Fellow will allow him to develop evidence syntheses for stakeholders, help translate research knowledge into actions, and connect citizen concerns to high-level decision makers. Chris hopes he can help foster a community where more people can engage in discussions about social and health challenges at an interdisciplinary, systematic level.
