Federal Minister of Health Ginette Petitpas Taylor discusses population health research with President Fairbairn and members of the Faculty of Nursing during her visit to TRU.

Federal Minister of Health Ginette Petitpas Taylor visited TRU yesterday to learn about federally-funded population health research being undertaken by Dr. Bonnie Fournier, Associate Professor with the School of Nursing.

Fournier was awarded a $600,000 Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) project grant to continue her research into reducing HIV-related stigma in school children in Northern Uganda through arts-based interventions.

During her visit, Minister Petitpas Taylor viewed a presentation of Fournier’s research project and learned more about health research at TRU in a conversation with Fournier, Assistant Professor Dr. Kathryn Banks, and Acting Dean Tracy Hoot from the School of Nursing, as well as President and Vice-Chancellor Brett Fairbairn and Director of Research and Graduate Studies Troy Fuller.

The minister and President Fairbairn also took the opportunity to view the construction of the Nursing and Population Health building, which is anticipated to welcome its first students in fall 2020.
