Congratulations to Dr. Darren Warburton (KIN; PI) and his team on receiving a $109,911 CIHR Catalyst Grant to study Indigenous Approaches to Wellness!
His team includes Dr. Jan Hare (LLED; Co-PI), Dr. Shannon Bredin (Co-applicant; Knowledge User; KIN), R Miles (Principal Knowledge User), Dr. Moss Norman (KIN; Co-Applicant), P Oh (University of Toronto; Co-Applicant), Dr. Ryan Rhodes (University of Victoria; Co-Applicant) and Gail Sparrow (Collaborator; Knowledge User).
The aim of this Catalyst Grant is to provide seed money to support research activities related to Indigenous approaches to wellness which represent the first steps towards the pursuit of more comprehensive funding opportunities (e.g., operating grants). This grant funds researchers who, in collaboration with the Indigenous community, will develop, evaluate, and build on existing tools and methods to better incorporate Indigenous concepts of wellness in health research designs.
Best wishes to Dr. Warburton and his team as they launch their research!
