History

The Centre for Critical Qualitative Health Research was jointly founded in 2009 by the DLSPH and the Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing. Its creation built on the acumen of over 15 years of “QUIG” (Qualitative Inquiry Group), an informal collective of faculty and students engaged in qualitative research across the health-related sciences at the University of Toronto. QUIG was originally established by Dr. Joan Eakin within the former Department of Behavioural Science in the Faculty of Medicine (one of the departments merged into what eventually become the School of Public Health.)
