Bio

Gina Agarwal is an associate professor in the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University. She joined the department in 2000 after training and working in England. Gina is the Principal Investigator of the McMaster Community Paramedicine Research Team and a practicing family physician at the McMaster Family Practice (MFP). Her research focuses on improving health systems for vulnerable populations. Gina is committed to ensuring adequate care is provided at the right time and place to those most in need. Her most recent research with the Community Paramedicine at Clinic (CP@Clinic) ​involves paramedics holding drop-in sessions at select subsidized housing buildings with high numbers of 911 calls. The results of a pilot study showed that the program significantly lowered the number of ambulance calls, improved quality of life, and lowered systolic blood pressure among older adults in subsidized housing. Gina is also involved in training family medicine residents and supervising undergraduate, masters and doctoral students.
