Summary: Health Research
at the University of Regina
The University of Regina is leading research to maintain and improve quality of life
and, for this reason, identified health as one of our thematic areas in 2000.
Since that time, our health-related research has been a major focus for the University
of Regina. World-class researchers are conducting leading-edge studies in aging,
long-term care, pain assessment and management, cancer research, population
health, rehabilitation and risk reduction, rural health, and northern health. Our
health researchers are supported by many of our Faculties including Arts, Business
Administration, Kinesiology and Health Studies, and Science. Additionally, University
of Regina researchers affiliated with the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of
Public Policy specialize in developing creative and practical policy solutions for the challenges facing
Saskatchewan's health care system.
In partnership with the First Nations University of Canada, our researchers are advancing Aboriginal health studies of
chronic diseases, nutrition and lifestyle, Indigenous healing, health delivery and control, and prevention and environmental
health. To complement this strong focus in health, the research of our Canada Research Chairs significantly
advances our commitment to people being healthy, staying healthy, and living in healthy communities.
As a centre for leading and innovative research initiatives
in the area of health, our research initiatives include:
