August 20, 2018

Dr. Elizabeth Cooper, a post-doctoral fellow in the Faculty of Health Sciences ay UFV, has been awarded funding from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Trainee (MSFHR) program and will lead projects examining Indigenous health and community well-being over a one-year term.

The MSFHR trainee program is funded by the BC government and develops emerging talent in fields where research supports the health of British Columbians.

“I am thrilled to receive this award and I’m looking forward to continuing my research with Indigenous families in the Fraser Valley. The fact that UFV is working hard to make sure reconciliation happens and that the health and well-being of Indigenous communities and people is a focus of this work is a key reason why I am involved.”
