Much of my recent research involves finding, casing, and evaluating exemplary programs in health and prevention science. Currently, I am investigating how historical and contemporary fears impact children’s sense of wellbeing. Previous studies have included an evaluation of province-wide investigations of a multiple hospital and community program to prevent inflicted infant head trauma, the development of a public health initiative to prevent children’s injuries.
