Jasmin Chen approaches immigrant and refugee women’s health from her background in cultural studies and critical theory with a focus on the communication of ideas and meaning. Her current research interest is in the area of immigrant and refugee women’s experiences of family violence, as a co-investigator on the participatory ASPIRE research project. Jasmin is committed to sharing information and encouraging conversations across diverse audiences, mediums and formats, which has drawn her to initiatives like the Culturally Responsive Palliative Care Community Education training she co-developed for Palliative Care Victoria; the National Education Toolkit for FGM/C Awareness (NETFA) and writing for MCWH publications, online material and resources. Jasmin likes to organise other people’s lives instead of her own so enthusiastically provides support to the MCWH Board and the Executive Director as well as performing both solicited and unsolicited editing and proofreading services. She has a PhD in Cultural Studies, and a Graduate Diploma of Education (Secondary).
