Denise Eldemire-Shearer

The leading authority on ageing and an unwavering advocate for the elderly, Professor Denise Eldemire-Shearer has worked with the UWI for more than twenty (20) years. In addition to being a medical doctor, she is Professor of Public Health and Ageing.

Professor Eldemire-Shearer has focused on ageing as her main area of research in which she has done extensive work. Currently she is examining the responses needed in the primary health care system to deal with an ageing population and is therefore very sensitive to the ethics involved in such research.

Professor Eldemire-Shearer has also done work in the epidemiology of ageing in Jamaica, intergenerational transfers and economic contributions, and has also had responsibility for developing postgraduate training in public health, of which research has been an important part and has supervised many students at both the Masters and PhD. levels.
