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.
