Allison Forbes, a third-year Bachelor of Nursing student at Aurora College, was awarded the inaugural Edets’seèhdzà Studentship. Funded by Hotıì ts’eeda and administered through Aurora College, the studentship is intended to provide Aurora College Nursing students with a unique experiential learning opportunity by participating in research projects that will broaden their perspective on Indigenous and northern health and research. Allison will be supervised by ARI's Dr. Pertice Moffitt. We look forward to learning more about Allison's journey in the coming months and will provide updates.
Our priority at this time is the health and safety of the Aurora College/Aurora Research Institute community, as well as the larger NWT and research communities. The Western Arctic (WARC), North Slave (NSRC) and South Slave (SSRC) Research Centres are currently open. WARC research support and logistical services for outside researchers are available at this time.
