Western heading up Indigenous health network

January 15, 2018

Western University will be leading the Indigenous Mentorship Network Program of Ontario, a network of 13 institutions that is dedicated to culturally relevant and scientifically rigorous Indigenous health training. “For the first time, we are connecting the networks of the Indigenous community with the networks of academia,” said Geography professor Chantelle Richmond, who holds the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Health and the Environment. “We are putting communities in the driver’s seat on health research that matters to them.” The project includes researchers from hospitals and universities from across the province, including Lakehead University, Laurentian University, Nipissing University, the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Queen's University, Trent University, McMaster University, University of Guelph, and universities from Toronto and Ottawa. London Free Press | Western
