Lindsay Dorder is a first year Masters student who uses mixed method approaches to understand healthcare inequities and equalities vulnerable Canadian populations experience. Her research goals lie in explaining how adverse health outcomes result from the interactions that exist between the social determinants of health and broader systematic factors. Currently, she is completing her thesis research as a Free Range Scholar under the guidance of Dr. Paul Peters, Dr. Francine Darroch, and Dr. Dean Carson. She plans to use agent-based modelling and patient partnerships to study high health-resource users, also known as high-cost users, located in mid-rural Ontario. Overall, Lindsay aims to address gaps in healthcare access, health integration, and chronic disease management within a complex healthcare system.
