Latest Research

Our research is driven by community priorities

We are building a dynamic, interactive, supportive platform where people feel empowered to explore their individual or collective impact, and communities are able to mobilize around their health issues.

How does it work?

NT NEIHR is focused on four key areas that will engage, support, and strengthen communities to drive our research forward. 

Capacity building

Strengthening key areas of the project through youth engagement, education & scholarship, training, and research & mentorship support. 

Community-engaged research

Supporting Indigenous communities, organizations, and Elders in developing research that reflects their priorities and values.

Co-learning strategies

Developing courses and training materials for Indigenous methods and distance learning, and orientation programs for non-Indigenous researchers and students.

Knowledge translation

Facilitating partnerships, elevating awareness, engaging with health care and other research and education partners, and disseminating research results.

Respecting community

Our Indigenous communities are the heart of NT NEIHR

We value the unique perspectives of our Elders and community members who as mentors and collaborators are essential to the success of this project.
