Eunice is a Founding Member of the Coalition of African, Caribbean, and Black Nurses in British Columbia. As a health care professional (RN) who has worked in a materially under-resourced country in the Global south for several years, Eunice brings a passion for women’s health research. Specifically, she has worked as a counsellor for pregnant women living with HIV/AIDS and their partners which has piqued her interest in issues of nurse/patient empowerment in relation to achieving quality nursing care. Eunice is passionate about nursing care that seeks to sustain social justice activism in health education and healthcare provision. She is interested in advancing the need for more emphasis on restructuring the nursing education system to include respectful care for marginalized women and to enhance research related to women’s health.
