Lara Haines-Love


I'm a first year Master of Public Health student and in my spare time, I love to read books, go camping and hiking, and spend time with my dog, Matrix!

Educational Background

I have a Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) (Hons) in Applied Human Nutrition from the University of Guelph.

Public Health Area of Interest

 I am interested in infectious disease outbreak investigations and health promotion/communication in relation to harm reduction in the context of drug use. I am also interested in policy administration and promoting health equity, especially in relation to marginalized groups such as the homeless population.

Favourite Aspect of the Program to Date

My favourite part of the program so far is getting to know (albeit virtually) a great group of students who share similar passions to myself. I also feel very privileged to have the luxury of being taught by such knowledgeable professors.
