Forum Fellows 2016 - 2017


Malcolm Hartman,

Malcolm is a fourth year student in the Bachelor of Health Science program. His interest in health systems and policy stems from taking the courses HTHSCI 3E03 (Economics & Healthcare), HTHSCI 3GG3 (Health Systems & Health Policy) and attending multiple McMaster Health Forum events. Malcolm is passionate about generating ideas that address the health-system challenges affecting older adults. He has been involved with several projects aimed at improving health outcomes in this population, and has spent the past summer working as a research assistant for the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging. As he enters his final year, Malcolm will be completing a thesis focused on the health-system changes needed to meet the current and future needs of the senior population in the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant Local Health Integration Network.

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.
