Doctoral Student, UBC School of Nursing

Carla is a doctoral student in the School of Nursing at University of British Columbia. Her research focuses on the role of context in adolescent health promotion, with an emphasis on race and resilience in immigrant mental health. Her Master’s thesis examined the relationships between gender, acculturation, and theorized protective factors, such as ethnic identity connectedness, in reducing emotional distress among Southeast Asian youth in BC. She is currently interested in the ways that history and context have shaped nursing’s understanding of social differences, such as race, and the implications for health care practice and policy.
