Lindsay Day, MSc

Summer Student, University of Guelph, 2016

Lindsay Day is a second-year MSc student in the Department of Population Medicine at the University of Guelph, working with Dr.’s Sherilee Harper (University of Guelph) and Ashlee Cunsolo Willox (Cape Breton University). Her research explores integrative approaches that bring together Indigenous and western knowledge in addressing issues at the intersection of ecosystem and human health, with a focus on water-related issues in northern Inuit regions of Canada. As part of her thesis research, Lindsay led the development of a collaborative podcast that brings together a multiplicity of Indigenous and non-Indigenous perspectives around the common theme of how we live with, relate to, and manage water. Lindsay is excited to expand her experience in digital media this summer through a digital storytelling project at ICHR. She holds a joint honours BA in Sociology and Anthropology from McGill University. She has also worked in the horse industry for many years as an equine massage therapist and health and science writer.
