About the event

The Frameworks, Values & Rights series offers an opportunity for experts to delve into the core frameworks and values of the Women-Centred HIV Care Hub including their application to women's health and the realms of research, academia, medicine, and community spaces.

On April 12th, we are honored to welcome Dr. JoLee Sasakamoose, a dedicated advocate, educator, and researcher from M'Chigeeng First Nation in Ontario. Dr. Sasakamoose serves as Professor and Chair of the Educational Psychology and Counselling area at the University of Regina's Faculty of Education. In addition to her teaching endeavours, she plays a pivotal role in supporting the decolonized training of early career healthcare professionals through her adjunct faculty position at the University of Saskatchewan College of Medicine. Currently, Dr. Sasakamoose serves as the Wellness Research Director of the Natawihowikamik Healing Lodge and Wellness Clinic and is spearheading the establishment of the Indigenous Health Innovation Hub at the University of Regina. Dr. Sasakamoose's research centers on Public Health System Transformation, with a focus on improving Indigenous health and wellness, reducing inequities, and promoting self-determination. Committed to collaborative research, Dr. Sasakamoose actively engages with First Nations and Métis communities in Saskatchewan to confront health disparities and promote equity and justice within the healthcare landscape. Renowned for her contributions to Indigenous cultural responsiveness, alongside the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations in Saskachewan and community leaders, Dr. Sasakamoose co-authored the Indigenous Cultural Responsiveness Theory which informed the Cultural Responsivenss Framework (CRF). In this session, Dr. Sasakamoose will explore the CRF, a foundational framework for research aimed at improving the health and well-being of Indigenous peoples, including its application to women’s health research.
