Biography

Surita Parashar, Ph.D. is a Research Scientist at the BC Centre for
Excellence in HIV/AIDS with a background in qualitative health research
methods, and a commitment to participatory, community-based
approaches to research that meaningfully engage people marginalized by
social structural inequity. Her current program of research is based on
a prospective cohort study conducted in partnership with Simon Fraser
University, the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS, and McLaren
Housing Society of BC, and funded through a CIHR Population Health
Intervention Research grant. This multi-method evaluationinvestigates the
impact of a supportive housing complex on the health of individuals and
families affected by HIV and at risk of homelessness, a study that stemmed
from Surita's doctoral research at Simon Fraser University's Faculty of
Health Sciences.
