Project Year: 

Erica Abel and Marisa McArthur will take part in health research projects this year under Aurora Research Institute Manager of Health Research Programs Dr. Pertice Moffitt.

Abel is a member of the Yellowknives Dene First Nation (YKDFN) who wants to pursue research that deals with the crossover of modern and traditional teachings in healing. McArthur is interested in exploring research to action -how locally-driven Indigenous health research has the power to cultivate meaningful change in NWT communities.

Both 2020 Edets’seèhdzà Studentship recipients are third-year Aurora College Bachelor of Science in nursing students and residents of Yellowknife.
