Suzanne gratefully acknowledges that she lives and works in the traditional and unceded territory of the Abenaki people and the Wabanaki Confederacy.
In her role Suzanne works in collaboration with Indigenous communities and organizations on projects and on knowledge sharing and exchange initiatives, with the belief that the answers to understanding and solving complex health care issues, improving access and addressing barriers to care are found within communities.
