Biography

Dr. Amanda Froehlich Chow is an Assistant Professor in the School of Public Health at the University of Saskatchewan. Amanda’s research focuses on applying wellness approaches in conjunction with community-based participatory research methods to promote the wholistic wellness. Dr. Froehlich Chow’s current projects focus on applying etuaptmumk (Two-Eyed Seeing) and working collaboratively alongside Indigenous community members and non-Indigenous allies to understand how Traditional Ways of Knowing, Being and Doing (including nature and land-based activities) can be incorporated into wellness focused initiatives aimed at promoting overall wellness among children, their families, and communities. Dr. Froehlich Chow has extensive research and personal experiences understanding the unique factors influencing the health and wellness of children in rural areas. Amanda is a mother of four young children and has spent most of her life residing in rural Saskatchewan. Since having children of her own she has been in on a personal journey reconnecting her family with their Indigenous ancestry. Further, Amanda’s love of outdoor running, fuels her commitment to promoting child wellness through nature and land-based play. As such, her passion for collaborating with communities to promote the health and wellness of Indigenous children (across both rural and urban settings) in Saskatchewan, is both a personal and professional commitment; and this passion has been the motivation for the establishment of her current program of research.
