The 4th biennial Indigenous Health Conference will be held May 21-23, 2020 at the Sheraton Niagara Falls. This interdisciplinary conference will bring together Indigenous peoples, health care providers, researchers and experts in the field who are working to address the huge health disparities between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
The focus for this year’s conference is the future and how we can cultivate the youth as tomorrow’s leaders and agents of change. Topics will include youth leadership, suicide prevention, impact of colonization, murdered and missing Indigenous women, determinants of health, and Indigenous ways of knowing. Through this conference we hope to create better educated, more culturally safe health care providers for Indigenous peoples and to nurture the future leaders in healthcare for Indigenous communities.
