Over the past few months of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been reaching out to the Faculty of Health community through messages and videos to provide updates on academic and administrative plans, and to check in and stay connected. Over the spring, all of our lives were upended, and very little was known about when things were going to return to the way things used to be.

Dr. Jacqueline Gahagan started her research career in Ottawa in the 1980s, doing work on HIV. One day, she went to the Gays of Ottawa Centre and saw homophobic and AIDS-related graffiti on the building. Since then, Dr. Gahagan’s undergraduate (Anthropology and Sociology - Carleton University), Masters (Sociology - University of Windsor) and PhD (Medical Sociology – Wayne State University) were all related to HIV and health equity.

Obtaining my first degree means a lot to me. I learned much about myself and the importance of putting in hard work. From going out of my comfort zone the first time I inserted an IV in a patient, to my first night shift in the emergency room, I think my class would agree that receiving this degree is a significant milestone recognizing our efforts these past four years.

Achieving this degree is a tremendous accomplishment. I completed a bachelor’s degree in 1990, so I’ve been working in my profession for many years. Achieving a master’s degree is something that I had wanted to do for a long time, but the time wasn’t right until my career path changed and my children were pursuing post-secondary studies themselves.
