Evan Loeb, a Métis student who recently graduated from the University of Winnipeg (U of W) with a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, is finding ways to improve oral health in Indigenous communities.

Loeb has been involved in the Métis and Indigenous community for four years now. While he was in U of W, he worked with Indigenous Services Canada, travelling to more than 16 isolated and fly-in Manitoba communities.
