Professor Rice has had a long-standing interest in women’s health and women’s health issues. She has developed and taught courses on Health Care of Women at UBC, including a course cross-listed in Women’s Studies. Professor Rice also teaches graduate students in the area of health policy and the health care system. In addition to her teaching activities, Professor Rice is active in community work in reproductive health. She became a registered midwife (College of Midwives of British Columbia) in 1998. She is president of the Midwives Association of British Columbia and has had a long time involvement in advocating for the legalization of midwifery in B.C. She was a founding member of the Low-Risk Clinic, which was the first hospital based midwifery service in Canada and is presently a practicing part-time midwife providing primary midwifery care for women. Professor Rice was the first nurse practitioner to practice in the Planned Parenthood/Vancouver Clinic and was instrumental in development of their Cap and Diaphragm Clinics. More recently she has been involved with Vancouver Status of Women examining issues related to new reproductive technologies. Professor Rice is part of the team at the Centre of Excellence in Women’s Health doing research on the implementation of midwifery in British Columbia.
