Profile

In many ways, I knew a real sense of freedom as a Trudeau scholar and I believe this translated into the work that I was able to do with my northern partners. I felt encouraged by other Trudeau community members. I felt included in circles of discussion that expanded my own way of thinking about the world, this was a great privilege.”

Colleen MacLean Davison is tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences with a cross-appointment to the Department of Global Development Studies at Queen’s University. Dr. Davison was a Trudeau Scholar (2004-2008) and obtained a PhD in Population Health with training in Social Epidemiology from the University of Calgary (2007), a Masters of Public Health from the University of Glasgow, Scotland (2000) and undergraduate degrees in Natural Science, Outdoor Recreation and Education from Lakehead University (1991-1995; 1996). Dr. Davison has an international program of research and capacity development focusing on adolescent health equity and child rights. She works with local and international partners, including children and their families, to study and better translate solutions for overcoming health inequities. In addition to her research and teaching, she can also be found chasing her own four children around their backyard in Kingston.
