The RCB program continues to grow with new trainees and knowledge translation activities.
Our most recent addition to the list of trainees is Leo Rutherford. Leo is completing a PhD in the Social Dimensions of Health at the University of Victoria. On January 25th, Leo gave a presentation adapted from work by Dr. Greta Bauer entitled:
“Making Sure Everyone Counts: Considerations for Inclusion, Identification and Analysis of Transgender Participants in Health Surveys”.
Leo will bring a wealth of experience working with trans- communities to the table, will provide insight into how the Engage team can optimize the use of the data collected relating to trans-men’s realities, and will highlight important challenges and opportunities faced by health researchers when working with trans- communities.
The upcoming RCB trainee-led session will be by Carla Doyle on February 22nd at 3:00pm EST. Carla’s presentation will focus on community-based research methodology.
