Dr. Heather Castleden to join Queen's University as a Research Chair
The department is excited to announce that Dr. Heather Castleden has been recruited to join Queen’s University this summer as a Research Chair. She will hold a joint appointment in the Department of Public Health Sciences (Faculty of Health Sciences) and the Department of Geography (Faculty of Arts and Science).
This is a very exciting development for our department and, in particular, for our graduate programs. Dr. Castleden is a geographer and community based participatory researcher who studies the intersections of environment and human health. In her new appointment, she will be offering students within PHS the opportunity to take part in a field school that focuses upon Aboriginal Health, and she will be developing a new course in qualitative research methods.
Heather is extremely excited about taking up her joint appointment at Queen's University and moving her family to Kingston
