Congratulations to SPPH PhD student Imelda Wong who has been awarded the Mustard Fellowship by Institute for Work & Health.
The Fellowship is named in honour of Dr. J. Fraser Mustard, who was the founding Board Chair of the Institute for Work & Health. The Fellowship supports the development of outstanding new researchers in the field of work and health and aims to build capacity for innovative multidisciplinary research concerning the relationships between work environments and worker health.
