Bio/Research

Dr. Wendy Frisby is a Professor in the School of Kinesiology at UBC. The overall goal of her research program is to determine how those who have the least access to sport and recreation can become more involved as decision makers and participants to promote health, policy change, and other outcomes. She conducts feminist participatory action research with citizens and practitioners to analyze how the social and living conditions experienced by those living in poverty, which are often exacerbated by existing policies, programs, and structures in community sport and recreation, create barriers to participation. She is currently working on a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) funded project examining a newcomer health and wellness program in North Vancouver from the perspectives recreation managers and staff, immigrant women, and a number of community partners.
