Ashlee Cunsolo Willox
Academic and researcher Ashlee Cunsolo Willox is passionate about the environment and about exploring how our connections to and love of a place shape who we are, how we act, and how we feel. As part of her deep desire to understand the relationships between and among place, culture, health, and environment, Ashlee has been working collaboratively with Inuit colleagues in Nunatsiavut, Labrador to examine how changes in the land, climate, and environment are affecting Inuit livelihoods and cultural activities, and the subsequent impacts to mental health and wellbeing. She holds a Canada Research Chair in Determinants of Healthy Community and an Assistant Professorship in Community Health at Cape Breton University, where she works in the departments of Nursing and Indigenous Studies.
