Laurentian University involved in Indigenous-led health research 

Laurentian University involved in Indigenous-led health research  | International Indigenous Issues | Scoop.it

Laurentian University is part of a new centre for Indigenous health research, a provincewide network of 13 institutions. Western University in Guelph will lead the centre, the Indigenous Mentorship Network Program of Ontario. It was launched by Indigenous people for health-care research into Indigenous people. It may see more health-care support and staff in Indigenous communities across the province, said Jennifer Walker, a health services researcher and epidemiologist at Laurentian University, who will work with the program. “We will see more nurses, social workers, doctors, coming out of this. It is meant to be supportive of researchers, but that whole investment in the health field means more people attending university, going through nursing programs and schools of medicine,” said Walker. “It is a ripple effect, but I think it will be there.”
