The two questions that drive Abonyi's research are: What is a healthy community? How would we measure that? 

Over the next five years, Abonyi and her team will continue to answer these questions with the Athabasca Health Authority in Northern Saskatchewan. Work on development of a toolkit that identifies more than 200 indicators of community health and wellness is complete and now moves into the next stage of implementation.
