Indigenous Speakers Series: Top Down vs. Community-Driven: Indigenous Health Policy In Canada. NOV. 25, 2015, 9 am–12 pm
Dr. Shannon Waters and Dr. Pierre-Gerlier (PG) Forest will share their extensive experience with the development and implementation of Indigenous health policy in Canada. Presenters will discuss the roles of traditional knowledge, politics, community-driven approaches and research & surveillance in the development of Indigenous health programming and Indigenous health policy at federal and provincial levels. As Indigenous peoples reclaim their health, and with the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Royal Commission on the Future of Health Care (the Romanow Report), the presenters will discuss the complexities that arise when efforts are made to incorporate multiple voices in the creation of Indigenous health policy from the grassroots level.

We have been working hard to add services to the research commons that will help UBC’s graduate students even more. At the end of October and going forward we added a new writing group that will offer feedback and support for graduate students to help them start and keep a writing habit. This is in addition to all of our other continuing services.
Thank you for all of your help in passing this information along!
