About the cover and special issue





The Canadian Association for Health Sciences and Policy Research (CAHSPR) Student Working Group is a pan-Canadian, student-run, voluntary group. The Student Working Group was formed in 2008 to enhance and facilitate graduate student and postdoctoral fellow involvement in the annual CAHSPR conference and in the health services and policy research community.

When the CAHSPR Student Working Group proposed a collaboration with HPJ to create a special issue highlighting student-led health equity research, HPJ recognized this collaboration presented a unique opportunity that allowed us both to work towards our respective (and complementary) missions to promote trainee skill development and mobilize the outstanding research being produced by students and emerging researchers.

Thank you to CAHSPR Student Working Group members and colleagues who contributed to the planning of this special issue: Marichelle Leclair, Sahr Wali, Komal Aryal, Rose Gagnon, Roma Dhamanaskar, Mary Bunka, Carolyn Melro, & Zeenat Ladak.
