Chair will focus on Indigenous women’s heart health – Brighter World McMaster

December 06, 2018

Training health professionals to treat Indigenous women with heart disease in a culturally relevant way is the goal of a new research chair at McMaster University.

Assistant professor Bernice Downey has received the Indigenous Early Career Women’s Heart and Brain Health Chair Award for the new project.

“The goal of this project is to deepen our understanding about how Indigenous knowledge about well-being can help Indigenous women to understand and manage their heart illness,” said Downey, who is the Indigenous health lead for the Faculty of Health Sciences and a medical anthropologist of Ojibwe and Celtic heritage.

“This study will give voice to Indigenous women that will, in turn, inform our work to educate health practitioners so that they become more culturally competent when working with Indigenous women with cardiovascular disease and stroke.”
