Anna is a post-doctoral fellow in the School of Population and Public Health at the Centre for Clinical Epidemiology. She is also affiliated with the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility. Anna obtained a MSc in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from the University of Western Ontario (2008) and a PhD in Experimental Medicine from the University of British Columbia (UBC, 2017). For her Master’s work, Anna was funded by a Frederick Banting and Charles Best Canada Graduate Scholarship to investigate hip fracture rehabilitation practices in the elderly. SciVerse ScienceDirect awarded her resultant systematic review the distinction of “2012 Top 25 Hottest Article from the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.” Anna’s doctoral research investigated the association between the built environment, mobility and health of 161 financially-vulnerable older adults living in neighborhoods across Metro Vancouver. This work was supported by a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship. Thereafter, Anna worked as a post-doctoral fellow in the Faculty of Medicine at UBC, where she had a lead role in the development of a project that evaluated the impact of the Arbutus Greenway on health and mobility. Anna is currently working with Dr. Boris Sobolev and Dr. Pierre Guy to better understand the link between processes and outcomes of care following hip fracture.
