Biography:

Dr. Wong has extensive experience in critical public health. Prior to joining Ryerson, she was a Planning and Policy Consultant at Toronto Public Health, where she undertook leadership roles in the development of the Access and Equity Policy, the Toronto Public Health Practice Framework, and large-scale health communication campaigns. She has collaborated with marginalized communities to develop, implement and evaluate health promotion and capacity building programs for more than 2 decades.

Dr. Wong is a proud graduate of Ryerson University (BSc. Nursing) and University of Toronto (MSc. Nursing). In 2011, she completed her Doctor of Philosophy in the Social Science & Health Program at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. She has also competed the CIHR Collaborative Doctoral Program in Health Care, Technology, and Place.

Dr. Wong’s teaching focuses on community health nursing and people-centered health promotion with an emphasis on social justice and health equity. Her research focuses on identity construction and gendered health practices; migration, HIV and mental health; and capacity building interventions. Her research is underpinned by the principle of doing research “with” and “not for” the affected communities. Currently, she is leading and co-leading numerous team grants to reduce HIV and mental illness stigma, address vulnerabilities and promote resilience in the Asian, Black and Latino diasporic communities.
