Dalla Lana School of Public Health

Daniel is a third-year PhD candidate in the Division of Epidemiology at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health. After completing a Master of Public Health at Brown University, Daniel came to Toronto to pursue doctoral research related to patterns of medication use among older adults living in long-term care. Supported by an Alzheimer Society of Canada Doctoral Fellowship, Daniel’s research will examine how antipsychotic and other sedating medications are prescribed for older adults with dementia, and whether different prescribing patterns (e.g., drug switching) have implications for health outcomes, such as falls.
