Registration Promo Graphic (1)

Aanii, She-kon, Sge^no, Greetings!

The Indigenous Health Learning Lodge and  The McMaster Indigenous Health Movement are proud to present the 2021 Indigenous Health Conference. Taking place on February 27th, the theme of the conference is centered on combatting anti-Indigenous racism through institutional and individual allyship. Conference attendees will hear from researchers, healthcare practitioners, traditional practitioners, and health advocates about the ways in which racism and bias in healthcare disproportionately impact the health of Indigenous peoples in Canada. Speakers will discuss how institutions are leading the charge for healthcare reform to provide equitable and culturally safe care, as well as the integral role of personal health advocacy towards this outcome.

The conference is open to researchers, healthcare practitioners, traditional practitioners, students, and community members alike, to create a day of meaningful relationship building and the sharing of knowledge.
