Biography (Short):

Dr. Elias is an Associate Professor in Community Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba, and former co-director and founding member of the Manitoba First Nations Centre for Aboriginal Health Research. Currently, she is the Director of the CHS Bold Ideas Colloquium Series. Her research interests under population and public health include gender health, mental health, cancer, social determinants and risk, health info-structures, Indigenous and interdisciplinary health research, and research ethics. She conducts multilevel quantitative and mixed-method studies into the social, cultural, biological, economic, political and historical determinants of health. Dr. Elias is a strong advocate of team collaborations, and has contributed as a principal, co-principal and co-investigator to over 44 grants exceeding $20 million. 

Dr. Elias is a research affiliate with the U of Manitoba Centre for Human Rights Research (CHRR) and is working with like-minded colleagues to advance health rights of populations. She has initiated and led three noteworthy national CIHR grants to understand through novel data linkage approaches the determinants of health disparities in First Nations communities. Dr. Elias also developed a health disparity research program that involved linking the federal Indian Registry System to the Province of Manitoba health and social administrative databases (affiliated with Manitoba Centre for Health Policy and CancerCare Manitoba) to make transparent the gap in reporting of the health of indigenous populations in Manitoba and Canada. She is a longstanding member of the International Group for Indigenous Health Measurement and is working with academic and government researchers from Canada, the United States, New Zealand and Australia to liberate health and social information for Indigenous people worldwide in keeping with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. She is also a founding member of the newly created Canadian Indigenous Research Network Against Cancer.

Dr. Elias, in her affiliation with Regenerative Medicine, is the lead investigator of "Translating to the Community: A social epigenetic nutritional study of FASD".  This CIHR and Manitoba provincial government MLLC funded study is linked to an international FASD consortium that is developing an early diagnostic biomarker tool for FASD and associated co-morbidities. This study is framed to advance the rights of children and adults living with FASD. Complimenting this study is a research group she leads to advance dignity for those with neurodevelopmental disorders like FASD. In addition, Dr. Elias is a member of the CHRR water rights research consortium and ha s collaborated with University of Manitoba researchers to secure national funding from CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC to advance First Nations water rights in Canada. As well, Dr. Elias is a founding member and for director of the Manitoba First Nations Centre for Aboriginal Health Research. In the Department of Community Health Sciences, she teaches Core Concepts in Public Health, Health Survey Research Methods and the Social Organization of Health.
