Our Fellows Program allows McMaster students to study evidence synthesis, deliberations and public engagement, and be exposed to influential doers and thinkers at Forum events and through internships at government ministries and international agencies such as the World Health Organization.

Forum Fellows 2016 - 2017


Malcolm Hartman,

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.

Padmaja Sreeram,

Padmaja is entering her third year in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program, specializing in global health. Padmaja’s interest in global health stemmed from her realization that health disparities within health systems can be addressed by targeting factors that extend beyond a medical setting. She gained a deep appreciation for health policy research and health-systems strengthening in the past year as a Research Assistant at the McMaster Health Forum`s Impact Lab. Her passions lie in encouraging the consideration of socioeconomic factors and multidisciplinary areas of research in shaping health-system frameworks, particularly in regards to women’s health. She hopes to use the Fellowship to better understand the inner workings of health systems to shape upstream interventions to address today’s pressing global challenges.
