Title: Buffering poverty-related risks for children with chronic health conditions: Is it all on the parents?
Bio: Anne Fuller is a paediatrician and early career clinical researcher at The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), and a PhD student at McMaster University. Dr. Fuller’s research is focused on understanding the effects of poverty-related risks (material hardship, early adversity) on child health and development over the life course, with a particular interest the cumulative vulnerabilities experienced by children with chronic health conditions and their families. Her research also aims to understand buffers at the family and community level that may offer protection in the setting of these risks, with the goal of informing meaningful, scalable interventions.
