I am interested in health equity, social justice and innovative ways to promote graduate student scholarships

As a nurse researcher, Dr. Martin works collaboratively with interdisciplinary teams and marginalized groups to conduct community-driven research focusing on health equity and social justice. Primarily through the use of qualitative methods, her research explores health equity and social justice from the perspective and lived experience of marginalized groups. She currently serves as a co-principal investigator on a CIHR-funded study to explicate the micro- and macro-construction of induced displacement from the perspectives of Little Saskatchewan First Nation youth impacted by the 2011 human-made flood.  Dr. Martin was the recipient of three teaching awards and she’s a Past President of Xi Lambda Chapter, Sigma Theta Tau International (Nursing Honor Society). She supervises students with interests in health equity and social justice and students passionate about quality nursing education and health services.
