This month, CQ says farewell to Kristie Serota, our Administrative Coordinator for over a year, and welcomes PhD student, Tenzin Butsang, to the team!
Kristie (right) joined CQ as Administrative Coordinator in May 2019 under Director, Brenda Gladstone and former Associate Director, Gail Teachman. She is a PhD student in the Social and Behavioural Health Sciences division of the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, supervised by Dr. Alison Thompson. This past summer, Kristie participated in the Yale Summer Bioethics Institute. She currently holds teaching and research assistantships in pharmacy and bioethics and her dissertation research focuses on the social, ethical, and legal issues associated with medical assistance in dying. Kristie is stepping down from the role as CQ’s Administrative Coordinator to focus on her research endeavours and is delighted to welcome Tenzin into the role!
Tenzin received a Bachelor of Science from the University of British Columbia in 2017 and recently completed a Master of Public Health in Indigenous Health at the University of Toronto, where she is entering her first year as a PhD student in Social and Behavioural Health Sciences division. She is interested in understanding the intersections between health inequity and the criminal justice system through qualitative, community-led research. In this new role, Tenzin looks forward to engaging with members of the CQ community both near and far!
We wish Kristie all the best and thank her for all of her work with CQ and are very pleased to welcome Tenzin to the team!
