Devon has been awarded one out of four Summer Undergraduate Research Internships by the Faculty of Public Affairs and the Office of the Vice President of Research. The research project she designed will focus on assessing the gaps in transitional healthcare provision for Syrian refugees recently resettled to Ottawa. Devon hopes to underscore the immediate healthcare requirements for refugees and healthcare providers, and present an in-depth discussion on the mental health considerations for Ottawa’s newest residents.

Her research builds on her previous international and academic experience with healthcare policy and procedures, and presents a very exciting new area of research within the Mobility & Politics collective!
