Dr. Cecilia Benoit is a scientist at the Centre for Addictions Research of British Columbia (CARBC) and a professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Victoria Faculty of Social Sciences. She is involved in a variety of projects that employ mixed methodologies to investigate the health of different vulnerable populations, including Aboriginal girls and women in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, female adolescents confronting health stigmas associated with obesity and asthma, homeless female and male youth, women and men involved in the sex industry, and pregnant women using addictive substances. In this video she discusses the effect of stigma on these peoples' ability to receive appropriate health care.
