The PHPM program is now more definitively connected to the larger UBC School of Population and Public Health ecosystem through the school’s Senior Education Manager, Lisa McCune. Her team provides ongoing operational, human resource, and administrative support to the PHPM program.
Lisa comes to SPPH with almost 20 years of experience in stakeholder engagement, program development and evaluation in community and health care organizations. She describes herself as collaborative, resourceful and a champion for advancing equity and access in health services.
Lisa spent 2021 working as a project manager with the UBC Faculty of Medicine Division of Continuing Professional Development (UBC CPD). Her previous roles include program development with the BC Aboriginal Child Care Society, community development with Vancouver Coastal Health, and patient experience with BC Cancer. While at BC Cancer, she established the patient experience program and launched the network of patient and family partners.
