Our priority at this time is the health of safety of the Aurora College/Aurora Research Institute community, as well as the larger NWT and research communities. In response to the global pandemic of COVID-19, the Western Arctic (WARC), North Slave (NSRC) and South Slave (SSRC) Research Centres are currently closed. All of the WARC research support and logistical services for outside researchers are suspended at this time.
I am currently a third-year BSN student at the Aurora College Yellowknife campus. I was born and raised in the NWT and am a strong advocate for Northern and Indigenous health. I believe that locally conceived, driven, and cultivated health research is critical in the quest to glean a broader understanding and respect for the deep-rooted and multifarious factors that contribute to the health and wellbeing of our unique Northern population. Currently, I am working with the esteemed Dr. Pertice Moffitt on the research project, Welcoming the ‘Sacred Spirit.’
