Bourassa is a professor within the Department of Community Health and Epidemiology at the College of Medicine, as well as the scientific director of the CIHR Institute of Indigenous Peoples' Health.
The two-year initiative is part of the $350 million effort to expand national testing and modelling to provide decision makers with the best science to manage the epidemic.
“I am very honoured to serve on this important task force that will provide an unprecedented mapping of SARS-CoV-2 immunity nationwide, including immunity levels among Indigenous populations,” said Bourassa. “I look forward to making sure that Indigenous voices are heard and represented.”
