Kelly Gregory, MSc Public Health, '22 Candidate

Graduate Student

Gender, Society, and Health

My research interests lie in women's experiences of the healthcare system, either as providers or as receivers of care, using both qualitative and quantitative methods. My previous work has investigated lesbians' experiences of reproductive healthcare services when building biologically-related families, and my current work is exploring the occupational experiences of women first responders, in a comparative analysis of women firefighters, police officers and paramedics, for which I have received support from SSHRC and the Department of National Defence MINDS award.

I am also working as a trainee with the Healthy Professional Worker Partnership, a nation-wide initiative exploring the mental health, leaves of absence, and return to work experiences of seven different professions, from a comparative and intersectional gendered lens. Additional research interests include structural inequities and social determinants of health, gender analysis, critical qualitative methodologies, and public health ethics.
