B. Changes at TeenNet



After over six years as Manager of the TeenNet Research Program, I will be moving to the position of Manager at the Canadian Tobacco Control Research Initiative CTCRI (http://www.ctcri.ca) based in Toronto. My last day at TeenNet will be September 3rd.



It has been an amazing experience to work with Harvey, faculty investigators, staff and students at TeenNet, and all our community collaborators. I will miss the project very much but am excited about this new opportunity.



We are in the process of looking for a new Manager for TeenNet, and I will circulate a posting once it can go external to UofT [Ed: the posting is part of OHPE 375.0]. I will be re-directing projects to alternate staff over the next few weeks.



My new email will be omaley@ctcri.ca.



Thank you for your support.

Oonagh Maley

TeenNet Project Manager
