Dr. Bosse has worked with vulnerable and marginalized populations for 20 years through community outreach, psychiatric nursing, nurse education, and research, and has seen the barriers to access and quality of care firsthand.

Dr. Bosse has provided education to service providers, health professionals, police officers, and students in social work, counselling, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and recreational, physical and occupational therapy on the needs of populations such as people who use injection drugs, LGBT populations, and people who have experienced homelessness, incarceration, or have engaged in survival sex.
