Graduate student Karen Campbell wins travel award
Apr 24, 2018
Karen Campbell has won a travel award from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).
Campbell is a PhD student in the School of Nursing. Her dissertation looks at the implementation and delivery of the Nurse-Family Partnership in rural Canadian communities. Her supervisor is Dr. Susan Jack.
“The award allows me to present the findings of my study at Public Health 2018 in Montreal in May,” says Campbell. That conference is hosted by the Canadian Public Health Association.
“There are complexities associated with rural practice,” Campbell notes. “The findings of this study will help to inform nursing practice, support policy development and develop innovation for practitioners who are working with vulnerable rural families. I think that sharing this information at a conference with other rural researchers will help advance the discussion about rural research and how we develop rural public health programs in Canada.”
