Nancy McPherson, RN, M.Sc.

Nancy’s expertise related to population health has positively influenced and impacted both her colleagues and communities. Her sense of humour and ability to engage her audience through storytelling helps her impart her key messages while leaving her students or community members informed and uplifted — rather than “lectured to.” Her strengths lie in her ability to share her understanding of the determinants of health and principles of primary health care, community development and harm reduction. She has contributed to the development and success of many partnerships that extend beyond the health sector. Nancy “walks the talk” by celebrating diversity and promoting community ownership of initiatives aimed to decrease the health inequities gap.
