Healthy North End meals, Walking With Our Sisters — and more
This week in community stories, Dec. 3
The U of M’s Sherry Farrell-Racette, associate professor in Native studies and women’s & gender studies, is doing amazing work with the Walking With Our Sisters project, which commemorates missing or murdered Indigenous women and girls, while human nutritional sciences professor Joyce Slater has partnered with Winnipeg community groups to launch Community Tables, a training program that equips community organizations in Winnipeg’s North End with the knowledge and practical tools to run healthy snack or meal programs. Meanwhile, Rick Linden, professor of sociology and criminology in the Faculty of Arts, has teamed up with the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health in Toronto to investigate motor vehicle issues affecting public safety, including road rage, dangerous driving, drugs and alcohol and driving, auto theft and auto insurance fraud. These are just three examples of the U of M’s reach into the wider community. For more stories, visit the community engagement website.
