Research Assistant

Jessy Dame will be working within SARAVYC’s Indigenous Two-Spirit portfolio. He is a very proud Two-Spirit Métis Certified Registered Nurse within Vancouver Coastal Health. He has worked within neonatal care, perinatal care, remote practice within Indigenous communities, and currently works within a queer focused sexual health clinic. He is currently working on completing his Masters of Nursing, with a focus on sexual health, sexual self-worth and non-consensual sex among men who have sex with men/Two-Spirit and the resulting health outcomes. He wanted to be a part of the SARAVYC team because it is leading the way in identifying Queer youth barriers within Canada.
