So happy to share a link to the online podcast of today’s interview on CBC’s Quirks & Quarks about our research on climate change and mental health and Nunatsiavut.
This research really wouldn’t have been possible without all the amazing folks in Nunatsiavut who were part of this research, who shared their wisdom and experiences with our team, and who led the research on the ground. Nakummek!
This research is led by the Rigolet Inuit Community Government, in partnership with the community governments of Nain, Hopedale, Postville, Makkovik, and Rigolet, and the Nunatsiavut Department of Health and Social Development.
Research was gathered by local research coordinators in each of the 5 communities:
Inez Shiwak and Marilyn Baikie, Rigolet
Myrtle Groves, Makkovik
Greg Jacque, Postville
Juliana Flowers, Hopedale
Noah Nochasak, Nain
Funding was provided by Health Canada’s First Nations and Inuit Health Branch through the Climate Change and Health Adaptation Program in Northern First Nations and Inuit Communities. Complementary funding was provided by the Nasivvik Centre for Inuit Health and Changing Environments and the Nunatsiavut Department of Health and Social Development.
