About the Speaker

Dr. Cameron Norman spends more time reading and thinking about 'the big picture' than most people. That big picture is all about the systems (e.g., organizations, communities, health care systems) we create and how they influence our health.

Cameron is the Principal of CENSE Research + Design, an action research studio that focuses on bringing design thinking and systems thinking together to support health and social innovation.

Dr Norman is also an Adjunct Professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto and is the former Director of Evaluation for the Peter A. Silverman Global eHealth Program and Principal Investigator of the Youth Voices Research Group.

He brings together the science of systems, behaviour change and health promotion, and design to create more beneficial and innovative spaces for everyone.
