Background

Adriana Angarita-Fonseca is a Senior Postdoctoral fellow in Sex and Gender in Cardiovascular Epidemiology at McGill University. She is a former Postdoctoral fellow in Chronic Pain Epidemiology in the Laboratoire de recherche en épidémiologie de la douleur chronique at the Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue and the Centre de recherche du Centre hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Physiotherapy from the Universidad Industrial de Santander (UIS), Colombia, she obtained a Master’s degree in Epidemiology from the Universidad Industrial de Santander (UIS) and a Master’s degree in Statistics from the Universidad de Valparaiso, Chile. She completed her doctoral training in Community and Population Health Science at the Canadian Centre for Health and Safety in Agriculture’s Ergonomics Laboratory (2015-2020) and the Musculoskeletal Health and Access to Care Research Group (2020) at the University of Saskatchewan. Currently, her main research interest is sex and gender in health outcomes.

In parallel with her Ph.D. studies and as a member of the Network of Rehabilitation Workers of the Americas (NRWA), she coordinated the Visiting Lecturer and Workshop Series in Honduras, which is a professional development program for rehabilitation workers in Honduras organized by the NRWA, School of Rehabilitation Science from the University of Saskatchewan (USask), and the Universidad de Santander (UDES) in Colombia with support from Honduran partners. She had received funding from two internal grants at the Universidad de Santander. From this work, she published two papers as the first author and won second place in a Latin-American paper competition in 2019 and 2021. Additionally, in the context of her position as a faculty and researcher at the Universidad de Santander in Colombia, she has taught different courses. She was a co-supervisor of a summer student at McGill University. Previously, she supervised 12 master students (four as principal supervisor), mostly her colleagues in the UDES physiotherapy program (n=7).
