This year we have an opportunity to present digitally and, in that way, we can include a larger audience. This will allow us to bring even more of our community together to discuss, learn and make change happen for our Indigenous communities.

Background

The Dawn Stewart Award for Research Support in Indigenous Health is named for Dawn Stewart, who worked in Indigenous health research at the University of Manitoba for over three decades. She finished her career at the university at Ongomiizwin – Research, Indigenous Institute of Health and Healing as the Research Programs Lead in 2017.

Relationships are central to Indigenous health research and Dawn always ensured the Centre remained a welcoming and supportive place for building relationships. Not only was she a mentor and confidante to students, research, community research assistants and faculty members, but she administratively transformed the way Indigenous health research is conducted at UM.

Ultimately, Dawn’s work was integral to the success of Indigenous health research at the University of Manitoba, though it often went without accolades. We name this award in her honour in recognition of her many contributions.

The Dawn Stewart Award for Research Support in Indigenous Health will be awarded annually at the Indigenous Health Research Symposium to an individual who exemplifies the qualities Dawn embodied in the area of Indigenous health research, someone who, through their role in supporting research, remains an unsung hero.
