Research/Teaching Interests

Dr. Rand’s area of research has focused on Indigenous community-based HIV and STBBI prevention and sexual health promotion. Her doctoral research was nested within an Inuit HIV prevention study and specifically examined the interaction of Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit (Inuit societal values and principles) and community-based participatory research (CBPR) principles. Dr. Rand’s teaching focus spans topics including health, health promotion and health professions, teaching sexual health, human sexuality, and gender & sexuality. She is currently working closely with Wabanaki-Labrador Indigenous Health Research Network on projects related to community-based research and enacting Indigenous research ethics within Atlantic Universities.
