Welcome to our newest Associate Member - Yvonne LeBlanc!

Yvonne received her PhD from the Sociology Department at McMaster University in 2010 and since that time she has been working as a sociologist in the area of health and aging. Her scholarly interests fit broadly within the areas of critical health and aging studies, and educational gerontology. Over the past decade, she has taught a wide variety of core and elective health and aging undergraduate courses in the Health Aging and Society Department at McMaster University. As a teacher, pedagogically, she is primarily interested in engaging students in experiential and active learning opportunities that are designed to enhance their learning about aging; more specifically, to critically reflect on their attitudes about older people and growing older and the contemporary issues facing older adults.
