Nicole Morin is an Occupational Therapist at the University of Alberta Hospital where she is actively involved in the hospital community and sits on the Quality Improvement Council as well as the Clinical Ethics Committee. She completed her Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy from the University of Alberta. She also pursued a Masters degree in Public Policy from the University of Calgary, where her research focused on the social determinants of health and health inequities. Nicole is an enthusiastic advocate for hospice and palliative care. This stems from her experience working as an OT with patients who have a palliative diagnosis, as well as through her volunteer work with individuals and their families that are affected by terminal illness. By amalgamating her educational and professional experiences, Nicole hopes to serve as a catalyst for end of life care and policies that mitigate the impact of poverty on individuals with life-limiting illnesses.
