Ayda Agha, Researcher
I am currently a psychology graduate student at the University of Ottawa. I have been working as a community health researcher for over ten years on a variety of community projects just like this one. I enjoy listening to stories from people around the world about their experiences. I love traveling, watching tv shows and movies, and spending time with family and friends. I am looking forward to meeting you!
Minda Wood, Researcher
I am currently a graduate student at the University of Ottawa working on completing my PhD in Community Psychology. I have always been very passionate about working with others to make a positive difference in the community and I have been involved in community health research for just over a year now. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with the people I love, creating music, being active and all things nerdy, including learning, reading and writing. I am looking forward to working together to find solutions to help strengthen our community!
