Biography: Ali completed her Master of Science in Aging & Health through Queen’s University.

She is currently a first-year doctoral student in the Population Health program at the University of Ottawa. Ali aims to contribute to the development of age-inclusive communities and raise awareness for the needs of older adults, specifically people living with dementia and their care partners.
