John Matchim - Visiting researcher at CEDAR

NEWS John Matchim a doctoral candidate at the University of New Brunswick is now visiting CEDAR.

John Matchim is a doctoral candidate at the University of New Brunswick’s Department of History, located in eastern Canada. He previously worked as a research associate for Memorial University’s Faculty of Medicine in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

John studies the social history of medicine in rural-remote regions of the Canadian Arctic and the Circumpolar North. His dissertation research focuses on the International Grenfell Association, a semi-autonomous health care provider that operated in Labrador and northern Newfoundland until 1981, and the hospital ship Strathcona III.

Given John’s interest in addressing health care inequities in northern communities, the purpose of this research trip is to learn about health services in another circumpolar region and share knowledge with other researchers and health care officials. He is also interested in learning new ways to analyze the health records that form the basis of his research from the renowned expertise available at CEDAR.

John is invited to hold a seminar about his research on Thursday May 12th.
