Meet 2021 Global Health Scholar Alua Kulenova

McGill Global Health Scholar Alua Kulenova is a Political Science student working with School of Physical and Occupational Therapy Professor Dr. Raphael Lencucha.

McGill Global Health Scholar Alua Kulenova is a Political Science student and a McGill Global Health Scholar supported by the John Locke Churchill Scholars Award. She is working with Dr. Raphael Lencucha on How is policy incoherence problematised at the global level, and what are the implications for NCD prevention.

"My current responsibilities as a Global Health Scholar involve collecting documents concerned with the Sustainable Development Goals, conducting literature reviews, and qualitatively analyzing the relevant information. I am drafting a summary report of my findings and will assist with a journal manuscript.

The most exciting aspect of my internship is the opportunity to be immersed in research that combines an interest in disease prevention with the social sciences. It's been lovely to be a part of a cohort of students exploring different avenues of research, reflecting the diversity of global health itself."

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous Peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg Nations. McGill honours, recognizes, and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous Peoples from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
