Consistent with national findings, SASS research found "risk factors" for sexual violence victimization were directly linked with social determinants of health including gender, sexual orientation, race, age, income, disability (particularly cognitive disabilities), and geography. SASS has identified that there is a unique intersection where health and justice overlap that would greatly benefit from intersectoral action that would improve experiences of survivors and contribute to better systemic outcomes. The health system is a point of entry for survivors of sexual violence, and there is a need to examine where this system interacts with survivors to create and exacerbate negative impacts.

Trainee As a trainee, I would bring expertise and passion for qualitative research approaches. My previous research has examined women first responder's occupational experiences, the gendered nature of mental health, leaves of absence, and return to work experiences of physicians and midwives, and lesbian's experiences accessing reproductive health services. As a current PhD student in the Social and Behavioural Health Sciences program at the University of Toronto, with a women's health specialization, I plan to orient my dissertation around women's experiences of the healthcare system, and would be thrilled to work with a team that could make use of my skills and insights.

Ontario Neuroplasticity tools as they relate to children and older adults. Preventing cognitive decline and falls in older adults. Enhancing cognitive and learning outcomes in children. Bringing helpful tools into research institutions (rather than focussing on knowledge flowing out, creating pathways for new ideas to come into research labs so that we can learn about newer tools that are not yet researched). Linking early infant reflexes to accumulated trauma and re-emerging infant reflexes in older populations to help understand the experiences of older adults. linking the experiences of educators and health care professionals as they see different sides of the same conditions. Trainee I would be very interested in projects/hubs related to older adults. I use tools (yet to be the subject of published research studies) that offer opportunities for social engagement, movement, cognitive enhancement and fall prevention. They are low-cost and enjoyable. Older adults want to know why their doctors are not telling them about these tools rather than sending them for expensive tests that may not supply helpful information and don't improve their quality of life. People need access to tools that improve health outcomes and give them agency to improve their own quality of life, but these are often deemed outside the realm of healthcare.
