In November 2019, the Rural Evidence Review welcomed Louloua Ashikhusein to the research team in the role of Student Research Assistant. Louloua is an undergraduate student at the University of British Columbia, studying biology and psychology. As a Student Research Assistant with the Rural Evidence Review project, her responsibilities include outreach to rural communities across British Columbia to understand their priorities for health care, and contributing to literature reviews and primary research activities that aim to provide high quality and useful evidence for rural health care planning in B.C. This research aligns with Louloua’s passion to work in the field of health care, which stems from her interest in raising awareness about the importance of physical and mental wellbeing, and her experience working alongside vulnerable populations in Tanzania. Outside of work and school, Louloua enjoys reading novels, trying out new restaurants and watching ‘Friends’ on a loop.
