Savithri Cooray

Savithri started her MSc in Population and Public Health program at UBC in Fall 2018. She completed her BSc in Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University. She gained her first insight into the public health sector as a volunteer at BC Children's Hospital and Surrey Hospice Society. Later, she worked as a preschool program assistant, and her interactions with children, their parents and teachers inspired her to seek her research interests at HELP.  In Fall 2018, she started working as a Research Assistant in Dr.Eva Oberle's research project, Teacher Wellbeing and Student Outcomes Study.
