Dr. Carrie Bourassa, Scientific Director of the National Institute of Indigenous Peoples' Health – Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)
A resounding theme in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action is the need for Indigenous communities to be self-determining. How can the health research contribute to this goal? Join us as we hear from our guest speaker, Dr. Carrie Bourassa, as she shares some of her wisdom gained by serving the needs of Indigenous communities through health research.
In this webinar you will hear about:
- What it means to ethically engage with Indigenous communities for health research.
- What it means for Indigenous communities to be self-determining when it comes to their health research.
- How Morning Star Lodge, an Indigenous community-based health research lab in Regina, is supporting Indigenous communities to be self-determining in their health research.
