Kungatsiajuk is a research study on the oral health of children living in south-eastern Labrador conducted by researchers at Dalhousie University and associates of the Atlantic Health Promotion Research Centre (AHPRC).

While working full-time for AHPRC, I was tasked with the design and development of the online knowledge translation tool and fact sheet for the oral health research project. The website was designed to reach a youth audience in south-eastern Labrador and a wider academic community.
