December 13, 2013
Fleur Macqueen Smith, knowledge transfer manager for the Healthy Children research program, is moving on after a decade with SPHERU.
She is joining Bob Pringle and the Saskatchewan Advocate for Children and Youth’s staff as Senior Advisor for Communications.
Fleur started with SPHERU’s Healthy Children research and knowledge translation program in 2004, working with Dr. Nazeem Muhajarine closely on a number of projects, including the Understanding the Early Years Project, the KidsFirst evaluation, Smart Cities Healthy Kids, and Saskatchewan Knowledge to Action Network for early childhood development (kidSKAN).
Through kidSKAN, she worked with Pringle and the Advocate’s office, on a variety of initiatives, including a series of interviews with Pringle that can be seen on YouTube.
In 2011, Macqueen Smith was awarded a National Collaborating Centres for Public Health Knowledge Translation Graduate Award for her master's research on knowledge translation, and its application in kidSKAN, which she coordinated.
