Jean Shoveller is a leading researcher focusing on the social contexts of youth health inequities, with a particular emphasis on sexual health. She currently holds a Senior Scholar Award from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research and CIHR/PHAC Applied Public Health Chair. The Chair aims to establish new intellectual and practice spaces for developing knowledge and actions to reduce health and social inequalities associated with STIs and unwanted pregnancies amongst youth (12-25 years). Key to this strategy is the use of participatory approaches, emphasising the democratization of knowledge development and exchange amongst researchers, public health practitioners and decision makers, and young people. Prof. Shoveller is also the Co-Chair of the Population Health Intervention Research Initiative for Canada (PHIRIC), a Pan-Canadian network of over 20 government agencies, research organizations, non-government agencies and health charities dedicated to advancing the science and practice of intervention research at the population level.

Carolyn conducted the original focus groups and individual interviews with adolescent men and then wrote the film script. Carolyn's generosity with the original Australian resources has led to this international collaboration and she is now also piloting the resource in relationship and sexuality education in Australian schools.
