Dr. Alexandra King, MD, FRCPC, is an Internal Medicine Specialist with a focus on HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C (HCV) and HIV/HCV co-infections. Alexandra is a Nipissing First Nations woman (Ontario & Nunavut). She is the first Cameco Chair in Indigenous Health and Wellness at the University of Saskatchewan, and Co-Chair of International Group on Indigenous Health Measurement (IGIHM)’s working group on Indigenous wellness. She is a Principal Investigator on various CIHR research grants related to Indigenous people and HIV, HCV and co-infections. She works with Indigenous communities and relevant stakeholders to understand the health and wellness needs of First Nations and Métis peoples in Saskatchewan and the changes needed to improve Indigenous health outcomes. She is re-imagining an Indigenous version of community-based research so it is centred on Indigenous ancestral wisdom and lived experience, and Indigenous research philosophies and methods. Much of her work uses ceremony and land-based and culture-based approaches to wellness.
