Throughout his student career at McMaster, Hark has pursued his interests in several health topics, including global health epidemiology, public health, nutritional sciences and neurosciences. His role as a Forum Fellow will allow him to continue to gain a deeper understanding of health systems, stakeholders involved with and affected by decisions about health systems, and the many factors that influence decision-making processes related to healthcare. His interest in health systems was advanced during a semester he worked with La Isla Foundation in León, Nicaragua on a public health research project focused on kidney disease among sugarcane workers in a small community. He witnessed firsthand how a health crisis affects a population. In addition to working on evidence briefs to inform stakeholders, during his term as a Forum Fellow, Hark is also the co-chair of the Forum’s student subcommittee, and will collaborate with other organizations in the McMaster and Hamilton communities to help engage students in meaningful discussions about pressing healthcare challenges. He is in his final year of the Bachelor of Health Sciences program, with a specialization in global health.
