The Health Arts Research Centre is pleased to announce that HARC Research Manager and UNBC Alumni Marion Erickson is a recipient of the BC Network Environment for Indigenous Health Research (BC NEIHR) Masters Scholarship. Marion’s Research focus is on revitalizing Dakelh midwifery through a Dakelh Doula training curriculum for the purpose of enhancing perinatal health outcomes in a predominately rural Indigenous nation.

The BC NEIHR Master’s Scholarship program aims to help develop research skills and to assist in the training of Indigenous (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) Master’s students in British Columbia institutions, who demonstrate “achievement in undergraduate and early graduate studies and partnership potential with Indigenous communities, collectives and organizations.” The BC NEIHR annual competition results in nine Master’s students from British Columbia post-secondary institutions being awarded a scholarship valued at $17,500.
