The Joint Collaborative Committees, a partnership of Doctors of BC and the BC Ministry of Health, invite you to register for session 2 of the webinar series on Elements of Indigenous Health and Healing. Hearing our history and stories takes place on Thursday, December 8th from 5:00pm-6:30pm.

This five part series is being hosted by Indigenous Culture Safety facilitator, Harley Eagle. Session 2 will include keynote speaker, N’alaga, Avis O’Brien, as she shares her personal journey as a Haida and Kwakwaka’wakw woman, highlighting the intersectionality of colonial genocide, systemic separation from Indigenous identity, land and culture, and the mental health and addiction struggles that come as a result. She will also discuss how Indigenous Peoples can heal through a connection to land and culture. Physicians will be offered tangible tools for offering health care that is rooted in belonging and cultural safety. Click here to register.

Please note participants will need to register for each individual webinar, and while the sessions are connected, you do not need to attend all five.
