Laura Aplin, MSc '12 

Project Coordinator

CANHelp Working Group, Department of Medicine, University of Alberta

I was very fortunate during my master’s degree program to receive funding from CIHR as well as several opportunities to work and learn around the world, from London, England to Fort Portal, Uganda. These experiences enriched the education I received from the School of Public Health and have provided me with invaluable connections for my career.


These connections led to me joining the Canadian North Helicobacter pylori (CANHelp) Working Group as a Project Coordinator. For this, I work with members of our local planning committees to help plan and carry out fieldwork for our community-driven projects addressing local health concerns in Canada's territories.
