Vice-dean of Indigenous health bridges professional work with community

Meet Indigenous Scholar Dr. Marcia Anderson

A day-in-the-life of Dr. Marcia Anderson includes a balance of motherhood, a fierce commitment to her community and continuous work in Indigenous health and healing – and her achievements have not gone unnoticed.

At 24 years old, she was the youngest Indigenous graduate in the Max Rady College of Medicine in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba (UM) in her graduating year, and shortly after, she went on to become the youngest president for the Indigenous Physicians Association of Canada. In 2011, she was honoured with a National Aboriginal Achievement Award (now named Indspire). In 2018, she was recognized by the Women’s Executive Network as one of the Canada’s most powerful women.

Now, she is a vital voice during the pandemic as the vice-dean of Indigenous health for the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences at UM.
