PhD student Kerry Marshall has been selected as a 2022-2023 Killam Doctoral Scholarship Awardee. Kerry's story will be featured on the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies website and will be linked below when available, but in the meantime, we reached out to Kerry, originally from Aldersyde, Alberta, for comment.

I view my PhD as an opportunity to continue to explore ways that we can reduce inequities within healthcare and make services more inclusive and accessible. 


I am humbled to be a recipient of this award and beyond grateful to be working with such a supportive, experienced, and dedicated team. I couldn't have done it without the help of my supervisors Dr. Bungay and Dr. Wytenbroek, as well as multiple other members of the UBC School of Nursing Team.

The title of Kerry's proposal is "Social justice in nursing education: A critical inquiry using discourse analysis." 

In her master's thesis, Kerry explored fertility intentions and family planning experiences within the 2SLGBTQ community.

We heartily congratulate Kerry on this achievement!
