Research in Nain

A research project in Nain will be starting up soon.

The project will involve interviewing residents in town.

Kirk Dombrowski is an Anthropologist and Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of New York. He also works with the Criminal Justice Department.

He says the research project he is working on will focus on people’s concerns, needs, and help with advice on public health, social and economic issues.

Dombrowski says the research will also include food security, housing, employment, and youth issues.

The research will hopefully allow the Nunatsiavut Government, Labrador Grenfell Health and other concerned organizations determine where people think about going for help.

Dombrowski adds that Frances Williams is working as a Community Liaison with him.

He is working and renting an office space in the OKalaKatiget Society building.
