Dr. Norman founded and leads Canada’s Contraception & Abortion Research Team (CART www.cart-grac.ubc.ca) which convenes government, health system and service decision makers with national family planning organizations, and researchers and health professionals representing a wide range of disciplines. CART aims to conduct health policy and services research to enable equitable access for populations across Canada to the knowledge, methods and services they require to time and space their pregnancies and achieve their own reproductive goals. CART research has informed federal, and provincial policies for contraception and abortion services and methods, health professional licensing policies, and national clinical guidelines. From 2012 to 2020 Dr. Norman held a Scholar Award from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research. She holds Canada’s Chair in Family Planning Research from the Public Health Agency of Canada and Canadian Institutes of Health Research (2014-2024). Dr. Norman was awarded the prestigious Darroch Award for sexual and reproductive health policy research in January 2016 by the New York-based Guttmacher Institute, the Inaugural National Mentorship Award of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada in 2020, and named a Woman of Impact by the government of Canada in 2021.
