    The IndigenERA Lab and IEHRA Project

    The Indigenous Value-based Environmental Health Risk Assessment (IEHRA) project is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Institute of Indigenous Peoples’ Health project and the Canada Research Chair program. The IEHRA project is led by Dr. Diana Lewis and an advisory team that includes community leaders from Mikisew Cree First Nation, Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, Fort Chipewyan Métis Nation, and the Oneida Nation of the Thames. The IEHRA is supported by student trainees in the IndigenERA lab as well as national and international scholars on the advisory team.
