Gregg Trueman, PhD, is a primary care nurse practitioner with a clinical and scholarly background in Calgary's inner-city. His PhD from the University of Calgary Cumming School of Medicine sampled the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta nine medical sub-specialties to examine the impact co-worker's feedback had on improving physician practice.

Clinically, Gregg follows street-involved men providing primary care to those who live marginalized by poverty, chronic pain, addiction, gender, mental health, and chronic disease. He is an active advocate for nurse practitioner integration in Alberta and across Canada.

Gregg teaches in the 4th year of Mount Royal University's Bachelor of Nursing program and acts as an external examiner for PhD candidates at the University of Calgary and the University of Twente. He is published in primary health care, gender, and hospice palliative care and is presently building a program of research looking at opioid use disorder in southern Alberta.
