In this episode Eric, along with special guest host Matt Genuchi from Boise State University in Boise, ID, interviewed John Oliffe from the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. John is the founder of the UBC Men’s Health Research Program, where a primary focus is on mental health, understanding depression and suicide, and offering active community intervention programs (in Canada and Australia). His academic training begins as a nurse in Australia, later earning a PhD in health sciences. These experiences in hospital emergency rooms and with family members help shape John’s motivation to understand men’s health issues better, but moreover, understand their pain and then design interventions (and test their effectiveness) to provide help.
