Georgina is a fourth-year student studying a B.A. in Global Health with specialized honours in health policy, management, and systems. She is a Registered Nurse (Ghana) and Personal Support Worker (Ontario, Canada), equipped with the training and background, required to handle fast-paced patient demands in cardio-renal environments, while helping vulnerable populations with comprehensive medical needs such as the elderly, and people living with dementia in a retirement home and long-term care home settings.

As a research assistant to Professor Godfred Boateng in the Global and Environmental Health Research Lab at the Dahdaleh Institute, she will be identifying the health impacts and treatment outcomes of housing insecurity on people living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya. Housing inadequacy, instability, and insecurity are significant barriers to consistent and appropriate HIV medical care, access and adherence to antiretroviral medications, sustained viral suppression, and risk for onward transmission. She will be using relevant methodologies to analyze data and conduct a systematic review on existing scientific literature.

She looks forward to embrace the work of a health policy and system researcher by contributing to established global health systems and policies devoid of inequities, and rightfully delivered to target populations.
