In 2017, ID’s Associate Professor Dr. Milena Radzikowska and Associate Professor Dr. D. Scharie Tavcer from the Criminal Justice Degree Program collaborated on a project to synthesize and translate information on occupational stress injury.
Senior ID students, Madison Snell and Maria El-Lahib, attended the 2017 Occupational Stress Injury Symposium—a sold-out event organized by MRU’s Dr. Tavcer with support from Legacy Place Society of Calgary. Subsequent to the event, they worked to synthesize and translate the presentations that were given at the Symposium into 4 posters.
These posters have now been displayed across campus and shared, electronically, with community members, first responders, and researchers—those impacted by OSI. Our goals were to extend the impact of academic and community-based research into OSI beyond a one-day event, and to educate the public about issues (and interventions) related to OSI.
