Georgina is a second-year student studying a B.A. in Global Health with Specialized Honours- 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. She is interested in learning and expanding her skills while contributing to established global health systems and policies devoid of inequities, and rightfully delivered to target populations.

As a research assistant to Dr. Godfred Boateng at the Global and Environmental Health Research Laboratory–Dahdaleh Institute, she will be identifying the relationship and possible consequences between housing insecurity and health outcomes for people living with HIV/AIDS. 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 conduct a systematic review of existing scientific literature.
