Dal, UCalgary partner to address health inequities of incarcerated Indigenous women

January 13, 2022
Dalhousie University and the University of Calgary are collaborating to address the health inequities of incarcerated Indigenous women. Co-principle investigators Dr Jennifer Leason of UCalgary and Martha Paynter of Dal have received a $500K grant from CIHR for the project, which will also involve knowledge keepers, clinicians, and researchers from Dal, McMaster University, Lakehead University, Simon Fraser University, the University of British Columbia, and the University of Saskatchewan. “We have an ethical imperative to address this,” said Paynter. “The Truth and Reconciliation Commission demands it, as does the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.” Dal (NS | AB)
