Dr. Pertice Moffitt, Manager/Instructor, Health Research Programs at North Slave Research Centre (Yellowknife) had a rewarding week with two new publications in press. The first, a collaborative article published in the International Journal of Circumpolar Health qualitatively measures how culturally safe Sami patients feel in their encounters with healthcare. The second, Grandmothers’ breastfeeding stories to mothers: a knowledge translation gift appears on the Atlas of Science website and provides an overview of her and Sheila Cruz's research on integrating Traditional Knowledge in breastfeeding.
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.
