PhD Nursing (2014)

Wanda teaches community health nursing to undergraduate students and research to graduate nursing students. The focus of her nursing research is on food systems, specifically urban agriculture as a means for creating sustainable livelihoods. Wanda is concerned with the effects of climate change and works on the ecological and social determinants of health. She is also engaged in structural and governance issues in public health, as the President of the Saskatchewan Public Health Association (2015-2018) and Vice President of the Canadian Association for Food Studies (2016-2018), and is planning research in public health systems and services.

Faculty at the University of Victoria allowed me to follow my passion and take nursing into an unconventional direction. This has been an important component of my personal and career growth and development.
