Congratulations to Law and Society and History student Claire Gjertsen, who has won a Program for Undergraduate Research Experience (PURE) award for summer 2015.

Associate Professor of Sociology Dr. Ariel Ducey and an interdisciplinary team of researchers have been awarded a two-year Canadian Institute for Health Research grant to examine how devices and procedures are adopted for pelvic floor surgery, and to use their findings to develop a health care ethic that attends to how values impact everyday decisions and practices in medicine.

Second year MA student Lucy Wang is conducting an exploratory case study on how Canadian police are collaborating with community services in response to domestic violence. 

First year PhD student Kristen Chaisson expands interests to include how international organizations such as the United Nations influence Canadian health care policy, with a focus on obesity as a case study.
