Dr. Patricia O'Campo is Director of the Centre for Research on Inner City Health at St. Michael's Hospital and Professor of Public Health Sciences at the University of Toronto. As a social epidemiologist she has been conducting research on the social determinants of health and well-being among women and children for over 18 years. She has focused on methods development as part of her research including application of multilevel modeling to understand residential and workplace contexts on women's and children's health, the application of concept mapping to increase understanding of how residential neighborhoods influence well-being, and on the development of monitoring methods for rare health events in small geographic areas. She has conducted a number of longitudinal studies in the areas of social determinants of adult mental health, intimate partner violence and children's well-being as well as clinic and community based evaluations of programs concerning smoking cessation, prevention of perinatal transmission of HIV, and prevention of infant mortality. She has been widely recognized for her contributions to the well-being of women and children through the receipt of early and mid-career awards given by national organizations in the US and serves on several local, federal and international committees and boards such as the Board of the Wellesley Institute in Toronto, the national Canadian Perinatal Surveillance System committee, the national Canadian Institute for Health Research grant review panel on population health and the US National Research Council/Institute of Medicine Board on Children, Youth and Family.
