HARC member wins CIHR Canada Graduate Student – Master’s & BC Graduate Student Scholarship
The HARC team is thrilled to announce that HARC member and interdisciplinary master’s student, Kelsey Chamberlin, recently won both CIHR Canada Graduate Student – Master’s – $17,500 (https://cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/50513.html) & BC Graduate Student Scholarship – $15,000 (https://www2.unbc.ca/financial-aid/graduate-awards-overview)!
Kelsey’s research explores ways to promote perinatal well-being of northern and Indigenous young people as they navigate pregnancy to parenting journeys in northern BC. This summer she will be doing land- and story-based interviews with people with lived experience of navigating pregnancy to parenting in their teens and early-20s and service providers who support this population in the Widzin Kwah/Bulkley Valley. Her research will help inform a new supportive housing program for pregnant and early parenting young people being built in Smithers/northern BC.
