Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing
The Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing at the University of Toronto is an outstanding professional faculty that ranks among the premier nursing programs in the world in both education and research.
I’ve always enjoyed volunteering in the community, focusing on peer support, tutoring and advocacy. In my previous career, I worked at a non-profit organization dedicated to counselling and community development with marginalized communities.
After completing a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and a Master of Public Health, I was thrilled to be accepted into Bloomberg Nursing and to participate in child and youth-centred research. This work examines the role transition workers play in facilitating smoother transitions between hospitals and the community for young people accessing mental health services.
I’ve been lucky to have the support of donors like you as well as Dr. Kristin Cleverley, CAMH Chair in Mental Health Nursing Research. I’m very grateful for your generosity to Bloomberg Nursing. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to work on this project and expand my knowledge about child and adolescent healthcare. I hope to bring awareness around transition workers and show that their important role merits further rigorous research.
Together, we can improve care for vulnerable children and youth and work toward building more compassionate communities.
