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.

CFP – Native American Track at the Annual Research and Policy Conference on Behavioral Health, Due: Oct 30, 2015

Posted on Updated on

Greetings Colleagues,
I wanted to make sure you all knew about the Call For Proposals to present at the Annual Conference in Tampa in March. If you are not familiar with this conference, it focuses on connection between research and policy, which is critical for improving the systems and structures so that we can better serve tribal youth and their families. It also supports dissemination of knowledge around best practices.
The Indian Country Child Trauma Center is a partner for the conference in 2016. The deadline for proposal submissions is October 30th and we are preparing a Native American Track that will include keynotes, presentations, and workshops focused on research and/or policy in American Indian and Alaska Native Communities.
Please forward to those that may be interested in presenting and feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or need special accommodations regarding your submission.
Best,
Jami Bartgis, Ph.D.
