Louise Platt / November 9, 2018

Diana is Professor and Associate Vice-President Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion at the University of Waterloo. As a feminist scholar, she uses her research intentionally to advance a social justice agenda by advocating for a holistic understanding and conceptualization of health for women. She demonstrates, through her research, that women’s health is personal and political, dynamic, complex, and multidimensional with important links to leisure. By challenging the medical model, my work seeks to shift attention toward a full range of quality of life issues, including social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and sexual dimensions of women’s health.
