Sue Cragg, MBA
Sue’s areas of expertise include population health surveillance; social determinants of, and socioecological influences on, health; and strategies to improve inclusion and equity for members of Canada’s diverse populations. She also has extensive knowledge on long-term care and the health of older adults.
Sue Cragg believes knowledge mobilization helps shorten the time it takes for science to make an impact and also helps individuals with lived or living experience inform science about what research is needed. She takes pride in bridging the gaps across sectors and disciplines to support the knowledge needs of researchers, care providers, policy makers and those with lived and living experiences with substance use.
Before joining CCSA in February 2020, Sue managed her own consulting practice and worked at the Canadian Fitness and Lifestyle Research Institute. She also held the role of executive director at the Seniors Health Knowledge Network.
Sue earned her Bachelor of Arts, majoring in psychology and sociology, from the University of Ottawa and her Master’s in Business Administration from Queen’s University. She continued her education at the Sick Kids Learning Institute, earning a certificate in scientist knowledge translation training, as well as a knowledge translation professional certificate from the University of Toronto and Sick Kids Learning Institute.
Sue loves a good Sudoku puzzle or a challenging game of Scrabble.
