Dr. Lévesque’s research program, which has been mainly funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research for the past 15 years, focuses on investigating physical activity and health promotion interventions, programs, practices, and policies in partnership with Indigenous peoples in Canada. Dr. Lévesque’s work is founded on community engagement for the production and dissemination of action-oriented knowledge. Her research encompassing both Indigenous and mainstream/Western science approaches 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 Mexico to conduct program evaluation and research related to physical activity promotion and obesity prevention.
