New NBATC Coordinator - Kristin Farnam

The New Brunswick Anti-Tobacco Coalition (NBATC) is pleased to announce that Kristin Farnam joined the coalition as its new coordinator in January 2018. Kristin has worked in the healthcare sector for over 20 years with the first half of her career spent at the bedside in a care-giver role and the second half as a health educator in the community and to university students at UNB. Kristin’s experience in the treatment aspect of healthcare has allowed her to see first-hand the health outcomes of patients whose lifestyles included tobacco. Her work in the community setting has focused more on the prevention side of healthcare through various health promotion projects with nursing students, including wellness clinics as well as health promotion projects aimed at addressing health issues associated with both pre and middle-schoolers. She is particularly interested in exploring the rising popularity of e-cigarettes and vaping in today’s youth culture while examining its long-term effects on health outcomes. Along with a science degree in nursing, Kristin also holds a Masters degree in nursing with a teaching focus. You may contact Kristin at admin@nbatc.ca.
