Queen Elizabeth Scholar in Strengthening Health Systems
Malcolm is an undergraduate in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program and a Fellow at the McMaster Health Forum. While at the Forum, Malcolm has contributed to initiatives including synthesizing evidence for evidence briefs and rapid responses, evaluation of the citizen panel program, and co-chairing the Student Leadership Team.
As an outgoing Queen Elizabeth Scholar, he will be travelling to Johannesburg, South Africa to intern at the Africa Centre for Evidence. Malcolm’s research will focus on the implementation of national health insurance and strategies to improve evidence informed decision-making. Malcolm is thrilled to work with the Centre and through this work he hopes to further his understanding of how research evidence is translated to policy decisions.
