  • Dr. Evelyn Vingilis: Director, Population and Community Health Unit

The Population and Community Health Unit (PCHU) engages in epidemiological, analytical and evaluative research and health data collection. The unit focuses on a population health approach with a special interest in the communities of London and Southwest Ontario using health prevention and health promotion principles.

Our work is unique, broad and interdisciplinary, reflecting on problems with high economic burden to not only the health sector but also to many other sectors that intersect with health, such as justice, transport, corrections, social services, child and youth services. We are also unique in conducting work that is at the cusp of the health and justice service sectors.

Mission Statement

The Population & Community Health Unit Provides a response, where possible, on stake holders and the various health-related issues identified by public.
