UNBC launches NCCR, receives funding to support HEAL

The University of Northern British Columbia has embarked on two projects related to health care in the north. UNBC, the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine, and Northern Health have collaboratively launched a Northern Centre for Clinical Research (NCCR). The centre will create more opportunities for clinical and biomedical research in northern British Columbia by supporting research relevant to northern, remote, and Indigenous populations; rural health workers; and research training and mentorship for students, healthcare workers, and health investigators. UNBC has also received $1M over two years for the Hearts-based Education and Anticolonial Learning (HEAL) health care project. The project focuses on improving health outcomes for Indigenous people by providing training and education to healthcare students and professionals on how to end racism and discrimination.
