About this event

A CBRCanada Webinar: During COVID-19: A Time to Pause

January 20, 2022, 12:00-1:00 EST

Taking time to strengthen our wisdom during a global pandemic allows for the examining and questioning of many aspects of research. This webinar explores an Indigenous perspective on what it means to pause in community-based research. Dr Shaun Hains will reflect on issues such as Indigenous voice, ethics, and community collaboration, during a time of change.

One week following the webinar, we will host a live discussion facilitated by presenter. Register here.
