Dr. Pritchard completed a PhD in Medical Sciences (Physiology and Pharmacology) at McMaster University and a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Medicine, Division of Geriatrics. The focus of her PhD and postdoc work was on the assessment of bone quality in older adults with type 2 diabetes, the assessment of frailty in clinical practice, and on the use of electronic decision support systems for the dissemination of clinical practice guidelines. Dr. Pritchard teaches in the Life Sciences and Kinesiology Programs.

My research interests are focused in the fields of aging sciences and the scholarship of teaching and learning. I conduct clinical research with undergraduate students to learn more about the determinants of healthy aging, and specifically, how nutrition and physical activity can promote preservation of musculoskeletal health. I am also interested in understanding the impact of community engagement projects and intergenerational learning experiences on undergraduate student learning.
