Marie-Claude’s doctoral thesis, entitled “Evaluation of a professional development project in public health: the laboratory of health promotion”, materializes her interests in complex interventions, reflective practice and non traditional evaluation methods. From this perspective, she questions, with a developmental evaluation, the transformative process and adaptation of an innovative intervention aimed at health promotion professionals. Besides her PhD project, her research interests include ecological approaches, social inequalities in health and health promotion.
