Dr. Lévesque leads the Community-Engaged Heath Promotion Research group in the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies. Her research focuses on program evaluation and implementation science examining community-based physical activity interventions through an ecological approach. A long-time member of the Kahnawake Schools Diabetes Prevention Project (KSDPP) research team, and frequent collaborator on Indigenous research initiatives, Dr. Lévesque has extensive experience working with Indigenous communities within a CBPR framework. Her work is founded on community engagement for the production and dissemination of action-oriented knowledge. Dr. Lévesque’s research encompasses both Indigenous and mainstream/Western science approaches and has informed the ways in which respectful and relevant research is conducted with Indigenous communities in Canada (e.g., KSDPP Code of Research Ethics; Canada’s Tri Council Policy Statement 2: Module 9 – Research Involving the First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples of Canada). In addition to her research with Indigenous communities, she also collaborates with public health researchers in local communities and in Latin America and the Caribbean to conduct program evaluation and research related to physical activity and health promotion.
