A social epidemiologist by training, my research explores the upstream determinants of Aboriginal health, strength and resilience in Canada. I work in partnership with urban and rural Aboriginal communities to examine health determinants, and to develop and evaluate interventions that address community-identified health needs for children, youth and adults.
