Ingrid Waldron


Ingrid Waldron's research interests pertain to health and mental health disparities in Black, Indigenous, and other racialized communities in Canada resulting from structural and environmental determinants of health. Waldron has a specific interest in experiences of environmental illnesses, mental illness, COVID-19 and Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia in these communities, as well as how these communities seek help for and cope with illness. ​Waldron is currently involved in funded studies that focus on dementia (with Althea Innis), environmental illness and COVID-19 in communities in Nova Scotia and Ontario.
