Andrea Mertens is doing a practicum placement at the CRCF, supervised by Dr. Zack Marshall. The placement is one of her final courses for a Master’s in Public Health program she is taking online at University of Victoria. Before her placement, Andrea primarily worked in sexual health education. Most recently, she coordinated a sexual health texting helpline for anglophone youth at a Montreal-based NGO. She also has a Bachelor’s in Education from McGill.
During her practicum, Andrea will collaborate in research around participatory research and program evaluation. Andrea is also interested in research around 2SLGBTQ+ youth health and well-being, trauma and violence-informed care, as well as community and online-based initiatives for health and well-being.
