Dr. Nancy Carnide is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Work & Health in Toronto. She has a PhD in Epidemiology from the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. During her PhD, she was the recipient of a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship and a CIHR Strategic Training Fellowship in Work Disability Prevention. Dr. Carnide’s current research interests lie at the intersection between occupational health and safety and substance use. Her doctoral dissertation focused on the use of prescription opioids among workers with work-related low back pain and their association with work disability. Her emerging program of research builds on this work to examine use and non-medical use of prescription and recreational central nervous system drugs among workers, their risk factors, and the workplace consequences of their use.
