Canada Research Chair in Men's Health Promotion Announced

The overarching aim of Dr. Oliffe's CRC research program is to improve the physical and mental health of men and their families by studying three major health issues:

  1. Men’s depression and suicide
  2. Tobacco reduction and smoking cessation in fathers and men
  3. Psychosocial prostate cancer care

Describing gendered dimensions of men’s health promotion and illness management, Dr. Oliffe's research addresses health inequities in vulnerable male sub-groups. The knowledge generated will inform the design, implementation and formal evaluation of community-based and e-health interventions, while guiding clinical practice and policy to advance the health of men and their families.
