Dr. Christine Voss joined UBC as a post-doctoral fellow in 2011 at the Centre for Hip Health and Mobility in Vancouver, before joining the Children’s Heart Centre at BC Children’s Hospital and UBC’s Department of Pediatrics in 2015. In 2019, she relocated to beautiful Kelowna in the BC Interior to join the new UBC Faculty of Medicine Centre for Chronic Disease Prevention and Management.
Voss’ overall research goals are to better understand how physical activity behaviours relate to current and long-term health outcomes in children and youth living with chronic conditions (e.g. congenital heart disease, type 1 diabetes), and to identify strategies to improve physical activity participation. For her clinical research projects, she collaborates closely with clinical colleagues at BC Children’s Hospital and Interior Health. Across projects, she integrates a range of methodologies to assess physical activity behaviours and contexts, ranging from qualitative interviews to global positioning systems (GPS), geographic information systems software (GIS), and commercial wearable activity trackers.
