New Face at the National Office
Hi, my name is Carolyn Blushke.
I am the Junior Program Coordinator at the National Office. I am responsible for coordinating the management, completion and reporting of several different research projects including AIV and in particular a new Canadian Safety and Security Program project involving numerous national collaborators conducting surveillance and analysis of SARS-CoV-2 in Canadian wildlife. I had worked for the Canadian Cooperative Wildlife Health Centre, as it was known at the time in a term position processing samples for Chronic Wasting Disease surveillance.
I have worked at the University of Saskatchewan in both the undergraduate medical education and MBA programs. Prior to that, I worked at Saskatchewan Environment in the parks branch. I completed several different projects including conducting a forest health study, researching, and writing forest management strategies and developing material related to forest health and forest renewal.
I am happy to be back at the CWHC and look forward to working on various wildlife health issues.
