Queen Elizabeth Scholar in Strengthening Health Systems
Michael is an undergraduate student in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program at McMaster University. With a background in clinical research related to transfusion medicine, he hopes to broaden his scope of work by working to translate research into tangible policy for the sake of strengthening health systems.
As an outgoing Queen Elizabeth Scholar, Michael will be traveling to the Sax Institute in Australia as an intern where he hopes to utilize his clinical background to aid in health systems strengthening. He is eager to explore the relationship between research, policy, and practice as it relates to varying health systems, considering the unique challenges present at each step of the process.
