A past holder of a Canadian Institutes of Health Research New Investigator award and an Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Career Scientist award, Julia Abelson's research interests include public engagement in health system governance; the analysis of the determinants of health policy decision-making; and the evaluation of innovations in the organization, funding and delivery of health services. Through her research, education and service activities, Julia works closely with decision-makers in provincial, regional and local governments. Her focus at the Forum will be on citizen dialogues, which are structured discussions about what citizens themselves see as problems and viable solutions.

Julia obtained her M.Sc. in Health Policy and Management from the Harvard School of Public Health and her doctorate in social and policy sciences at the University of Bath, United Kingdom.
