Bio/Research

Dr. Patricia O’Campo is Professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public health

and Adjunct Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public health. 

She is Director of the Centre for Research on Inner City Health at St. Michael’s

hospital in Toronto, a centre dedicated to reducing health inequities through

research that supports social change for complex health and social problems. 

As a social epidemiologist she has been conducting policy relevant research on

the social determinants of health and well-being across North America for over

25 years.  Relying primarily on original research data collection, she has received

over 60 research grants to address complex populations and problems. She has conducted

extensive research on the topics of violence (e.g., partner violence and youth

violence); women’s, children’s and infants well-being; and intersectoral action

for health.  The majority of her research is undertaken in partnership with community

or policy partners who will use the evidence for change.  

She has been widely recognized for her contributions to health equity by receiving

numerous international early and mid-career  awards and using her expertise she

serves and has served on several local, federal and international committees and

boards the Board of Trustees at Toronto’s United Way, the national Canadian Perinatal

Surveillance System committee, the WHO Advisory Group on Urban Health Equity Assessment

and Response Tool (Urban HEART), and the US Federal Advisory Committee for the

multi-billion dollar National Children’s Study.  '
