Advising and Consulting Activities

I am interested in critical theoretical perspectives regarding culture and health, and the relevance of cultural safety in shifting organizational practices and policies toward fostering health and healthcare equity.
I have a theoretical and practical background in initial and continuing nursing education and I see critical pedagogy as one way to transform healthcare practices toward healthcare equity. My program of research aims at translating an equity-oriented approach of care for marginalized populations in healthcare professionals' initial and continuing education. I envision that my research program could directly inform curriculum development in nursing and other health disciplines focusing on promoting social justice and equity in health and healthcare.
