Lois Jackson, PhD
Lois A. Jackson is a Professor of Health Promotion at Dalhousie University (Halifax, NS). Currently, she is also Co-Director of the Atlantic Interdisciplinary Research Network (AIRN). For over 20 years, she has conducted community-based research with marginalized populations, and her research focuses in particular on people who use substances. Much of her work centres on access to health services, and specifically, harm reduction services. Her research draws attention to the challenges of access for those living outside of large urban centres. She has led a number of nationally-funded studies and has presented and published widely internationally, nationally and locally.
Jacqueline Gahagan, PhD
My primary research objectives are: 1. to undertake applied, policy-relevant health promotion research that works toward addressing the determinants of health that can negatively impact on health; and 2. to improve health outcomes among populations often marginalized by mainstream approaches to, and understandings of, health and illness through community-engaged health promotion research.
