Dr. Jaime Cidro is a Professor in the Department of Anthropology, Director of the Master’s in Development Practice Program, and Associate Vice-President, Research and Innovation, at The University of Winnipeg. She is a CIHR-funded Canada Research Chair in Health and Culture and the Co-Director of the Kishaadigeh Collaborative Research Centre.

Dr. Cidro also leads the CIHR-funded Network Environments for Indigenous Health Research (NEIHR) grant for Manitoba called Kishaadigeh: Indigenous Self-Determination through Research for our Future Generations. Kishaadigeh aims to up-skill research capacity and infrastructure for Indigenous communities and organizations undertaking health research.

Dr. Cidro takes a collaborative approach to her research, much of which is focused on Indigenous maternal and child health, and she partners with many Indigenous organizations and communities for her projects. Building on a project that explored how an Indigenous doula program can address health disparities, social, and cultural outcomes for Manitoba First Nations women who travel for birth, Dr. Cidro is now planning on piloting an Indigenous doula program in the urban setting with community partners Aboriginal Health and Wellness Centre of Winnipeg, Inc. and the First Nations Health and Social Secretariat of Manitoba.
