Congratulations to Kayonne Christy for her 2020 Strengthening Mothers through Perinatal Research Award!

Kayonne is a Master’s degree student in Sociology at UBC whose research project, “Investigating racial disparities in maternal health: An intersectional, cross-national examination of Black women’s experiences of prenatal care,” will examine the experience of Black women in Canada and Jamaica with prenatal care. She will look at the similarities and differences in the prenatal healthcare experiences of Black women in Jamaica and Canada to determine what accounts for these similarities and differences, specifically focusing on racial inequalities. The complete project abstract is here.
