Helen McCrae Award 2020 Recipient: Wesley Chow, BCIT (Nursing Award for Inclusion 2020)

I believe that nursing represents social justice and the reduction of health inequities that exist both within Canada and globally.

My goal is to reduce the stigma transgender patients experience within the health care system. My education will allow me to develop leadership and nursing skills to advocate for this vulnerable population. There is a paucity of trans-affirmative health care services, and I hope that I can help reduce existing health inequities.
