Biography

Dr. Snider graduated from McMaster Medical School in 2003, completed her Master of Public Health degree in Injury Epidemiology from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2007, and her Emergency Medicine training at the University of Toronto in 2008. In 2016-2017, Dr. Snider has been authoring a report for the World Health Organization on the role of emergency medicine in responding to violence. Prior to moving to Winnipeg, Manitoba in the summer of 2011, Dr. Snider worked at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto as an emergency and trauma physician and as an injury researcher. She is the Past Chair of the Trauma Illness and Injury Prevention Committee for the Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians. Snider’s primary research focus is the design, implementation, and evaluation of interventions for preventing youth violence. Snider practices mixed method research, using large administrative databases, community-based participatory research, concept mapping and clinical trial methodologies – all with an integrated knowledge translation approach. Snider started EDVIP – the Emergency Department Violence Intervention Program – and much of her evaluation work now revolves around this program. Snider currently receives funding from the Canadian Institute for Health Research, Research Manitoba, the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba, Manitoba Medical Services Foundation and the Winnipeg Foundation.
