You are invited to an IPAC Town Hall Tuesday May 4, 2021, 3:00-5:00pm PST
Anti-Indigenous Racism in Healthcare – A Canadian Perspective During COVID-19
Systemic Anti-Indigenous racism, The Opioid Crisis, and COVID-19 have Indigenous doctors in Canada working around the clock. We have seen both tragedy and promise. Join IPAC President, Dr. Nel Wieman; Chair of the National Consortium on Indigenous Medical Education, Dr. Marcia Anderson; and Deputy Chief Medical Officer of Public Health, Dr. Evan Adam, as they share an overview of what’s been happening in Canada, and how Indigenous physicians and organizations are making positive change. Q & A to follow the panel discussion.
The Indigenous Physicians Association of Canada (IPAC) welcomes you to the 10th Biennial Pacific Region Indigenous Doctors Congress (PRIDoC), on TBA, 2022 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This conference will take place on the unceded, traditional territories of the Coast Salish: the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. Canada has a rich and diverse Indigenous population comprising the Métis, First Nations and Inuit peoples – we look forward to honouring all of our nations from coast to coast to coast and showcasing our beautiful and varied cultures.
PRIDoC is an Indigenous-led space for Indigenous physicians, residents and medical students, health researchers, health professionals and allies. We gather around shared issues of concern related to the health and wellness of the many Indigenous communities and nations throughout the Pacific Region.
