Dr. Codie Primeau (he/him) is a postdoctoral fellow at Arthritis Research Canada through the University of British Columbia. While his graduate work focused on clinical trials for knee osteoarthritis (OA), his postdoctoral work will focus on studying experiences with healthcare and living with chronic pain for individuals who identify as a sex and/or gender minority (SGM) under the mentorship of Dr. Linda Li. Specifically, he will explore biological/psychosocial factors and barriers/facilitators contributing to pain experiences in SGM populations and establish key research questions identified by SGM persons through Citizen Science.
His work will use a patient-oriented research design including a stakeholder committee involved in all stages of the research to develop strategies for improving healthcare experiences and outcomes in SGM populations.
Codie completed a BSc in Human Kinetics (University of Ottawa), an MSc in Kinesiology (Western University), and a combined MPT (physical therapy – clinical) and a PhD in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences (Western University). He has won seven top-quality research awards spanning work in OA, knowledge translation, and sex and gender issues.
