About the speakers:

Brannon Senger is completing his first year in clinical psychology. With a Master’s in Public Health, his interests are in improving mental healthcare by making services more accessible and fostering coordination between primary care and specialized psychiatric services. Brannon strongly believes in the scientist-practitioner model and hopes to conduct research that improves outcomes for those with mental illness and have this research inform his future clinical work.

Chiara Gottheil is finishing the first year of her Master’s in Community Health & Epidemiology at Dalhousie University. Chiara works under the supervision of Dr. Robin Urquhart. Previously, Chiara completed an honours BSc at Queen’s University in Life Science. Her research will examine barriers to diagnosing ovarian cancer in Nova Scotia. Ovarian cancer is typically diagnosed at a late stage, so this research will help determine why that is and how we can diagnose it in a more timely manner. Chiara is looking forward to speaking about her project!
