Dr. Denise L. Spitzer is a Canada Research Chair in Gender, Migration and Health at the University of Ottawa, where she also is an Associate Professor affiliated with the Institute of Women’s Studies and a Principal Scientist in the Institute of Population Health.
Dr. Spitzer is interested in examining how global processes—intersecting with gender, ethnicity, migration status and other social identifiers—are implicated in health and wellbeing. Her current program of research focuses on the impact of the global economy on immigrants, migrants and refugees in different parts of the globe and engages with critical perspectives of the body, transnationalism and constructions of identity; the impact of policy on health; agency and social support; community-based research and intersectional analysis.
