Cristina Stef


MA Students
Department of Anthropology


I completed my undergraduate degree at Western University in 2021 with a BHSc in Health Sciences (Honours) and a Major in Anthropology. Throughout my degree, I became more aware of the significant role culture plays in our world, including in healthcare. This shifted my interests to a passion for macro-level healthcare, which looks solving overarching problems rather than temporary fixes.

My work at McMaster will be under the supervision of Dr. Ellen Badone and will focus on the role of culture in healthcare, particularly in the context of aging and older adults.
