Dr. Wellam Yu Ko

Wellam Yu Ko completed his PhD at the UBC in 2018. His research used the masculinities framework to examine the connections between work, prostate cancer and radical prostatectomy. Wellam’s research findings provide a strong foundation from which he plans to investigate the effectiveness of potential interventions designed to help men manage career and employment-related priorities after prostate cancer diagnosis. As a Registered Nurse, Wellam is committed to raising awareness about male-specific health issues in the community and is involved in the Richmond Chinese Prostate Cancer Networking Group’s activities to disseminate evidence-based knowledge and support men with prostate cancer.
