Dr. Sarah Oosman is deeply committed to Indigenous community driven action research that leads to the development and implementation of culture-based, meaningful health promoting interventions across the lifespan. Dr. Oosman brings a team science approach to her research focusing on community perspectives of healthy aging within, between, and across generations, connecting seniors to youth in ways that are strongly grounded in Indigenous worldview. Her core research team is a partnership with 2 Métis community members (L. Durocher, T.J. Roy) and a medical anthropologist (Dr. S. Abonyi), applying reconciliation into research practice. She explores unique experiential learning opportunities within Indigenous contexts to enhance the development of cultural humility among physical therapy students as a way to positively influence cultural safety in our Canadian health system.
