SHANIA BHOPA, GLOBAL HEALTH
As a Vanier Scholar, Global Health PhD student Shania Bhopa intends to enhance the reach of her community-based research working alongside the SCORE! Team in supporting newly-immigrated families in optimizing the health trajectories of their children.
Bhopa, who completed both her undergraduate and master’s degrees at McMaster, also intends to continue her child health communications work, which has included writing a children’s health book exploring the mind-body connection.
She also hopes to find a way to foster her entrepreneurial spirit through working with The Clinic, an innovation hub that equips emerging health inventors with education, resources and support.
“The Vanier Scholar award represents change, grit and optimism,” says Bhopa. “I am honoured to be a part of the Vanier Scholar community, working alongside fellow students who envision a brighter world for our future generations.”
