Oacia Fair, MScAPERSU End-User Support Coordinator
Born and raised in the United States, Oacia completed her BSc in Environmental Sustainability at Michigan State University in 2017. She was involved in participatory research in Tanzania and Nicaragua to understand food security challenges and their impact on indigenous communities. In 2021, she earned an MSc in Natural Resource Sciences from McGill University. She conducted a case study in the Eastern Caribbean with the goal to improve child nutrition by identifying how to build a local and sustainable food procurement system in the school meals program. This community-based research project sparked Oacia’s passion for improving health outcomes through research and using patient’s perspectives to inform healthcare.
Oacia is happy to join APERSU (since 2023) as a research coordinator. She will be supporting research on understanding PROMs use in Primary Care Networks in Alberta.
