Biography

Dr. McIntyre is currently a research associate at Centre for Collaborative Action on Indigenous Health Governance and a co-lead on National Indigenous Journeys through COVID-19: A National Indigenous Seroprevalence Cross-Sectional and Community Sentinel Cohort Study (Dr. Jeff Reading, NPI, SFU). Her PhD explored household food security and nutritional health outcomes of post-apartheid food security policy in South Africa. After completing her PhD in 2019, Dr. McIntyre did a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of British Columbia, working jointly with the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability and the School of Population and Public Health, exploring pathways between colonization and the health and wellness of Indigenous Peoples. Her research interests include Indigenous health and wellness, planetary health, population health, syndemic theory and Indigenous rights and governance. She is currently examining the ways historical, political and social factors shape the impacts of pandemics of both infectious and chronic disease on Indigenous communities.

Before becoming a full-time academic, Dr. McIntyre worked for 25 years in research, program development and evaluation in global health, food security, community development, human rights and post-conflict reconciliation and peacebuilding in sub-Saharan Africa and Canada. Dr. McIntyre was twice a United Nations Volunteer, first with UN peacekeeping operations and then the United Nations Development Program in Mozambique. She has worked for, and collaborated with international development agencies, government ministries, non-profit and community-based organizations and post-secondary learning institutions throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Upon returning to Canada, Dr. McIntyre joined First Nations Health Authority as their Senior Specialist, Healthy Living, where her work supported the development and delivery of diabetes and chronic disease prevention and treatment programs and services in British Columbia First Nations.
