Dr. Courtney Heffernan

Courtney currently calls Edmonton in Treaty 6 Territory her home… but has been fortunate to live all across Canada: from PEI to the home of the world’s tallest moose statue: Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and many of Ontario’s towns and cities in between. She received her PhD in Medicine from the University of Alberta in 2020, and since 2010 has also been working as the manager of the TB Program Evaluation and Research Unit; affectionately, her second home. Her work is focused on TB elimination with emphasis on transmission in underserved groups, surveillance, monitoring and reporting. She is also a member of the STOP TB Canada’s Steering Committee, and the CDC’s TB Trials Consortium Implementation and Quality Committee.
