PhD candidate, Epidemiology, McGill University
Clara Bolster-Foucault is a PhD candidate in Epidemiology at McGill University, under the supervision of Dr. Amélie Quesnel-Vallée and Dr. Isabelle Vedel. Her research interests lie at the intersection of social epidemiology and health equity. Clara’s doctoral research examines social inequalities in aging in place in Quebec, and explores the role of access to primary healthcare and social support in shaping these inequalities. The goal of this project is to understand disparities in aging in place among vulnerable populations and to identify systemic factors that can be leveraged to promote equitable health in older age.
