Published: Tuesday, July 14, 2020

We would like to welcome Gavin Andrews as the new Acting Director of the Centre.

Gavin Andrews is a health geographer with wide-ranging empirical interests in aging, holistic medicine, health care work, specific phobias, fitness cultures, health histories, and popular music. Much of his work is positional/theoretical, concerned with the development, state-of-the-art and future of health geography. In particular, in recent years he has become interested in the potential of posthumanist and non-representational theory in understanding the vital emergence and expression of health and care. 

Gavin is part of the Health, Aging and Society department at McMaster University. Read his full bio at: https://socialsciences.mcmaster.ca/people/andrews-gavin#biography
