The Health, Environment, and Communities Research Lab (HEC Lab) is a research group co-located between Queen’s University (Kingston, Ontario) and Dalhousie University (Halifax, Nova Scotia). Our research is centred on principles of social, environmental and health equity and focuses on three main themes:
- Exploring participatory research with community partners concerning issues that are important to them,
- Sharing development and testing of innovative, decolonizing research tools and methodologies, and
- Understanding ethical tensions and institutional barriers associated with community-based participatory research.
