Event Details

Join us for a gathering of Indigenous and Black public health practitioners and researchers at The Ontario Public Health Convention (TOPHC) 2019.

 

Over the last few years, more public health organizations are making a concerted effort to address the impact of racism on health and well-being. 

 

For example:

Alongside these activities, Indigenous and Black practitioners have identified the need for knowledge exchange, support and network development that speaks to the unique experiences of settler colonialism and anti-Blackness in the context of public health practice. 

This gathering provides a space to discuss relationships between Indigenous and Black peoples and opportunities for solidarity and support.

The gathering is hosted by the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health with the support of the Ontario Public Health Association.

Organizer

National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health

Integrating health equity and the social determinants of health into Canadian public health practice.

 

At the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health (NCCDH), we provide the Canadian public health community with knowledge and resources to take action on the social determinants of health, to close the gap between those who are most and least healthy.

 

We work with the public health field to move knowledge into action—in practice, in policy and in decision making—to achieve societal improvements that result in health for all.

 

We are one of six national collaborating centres funded through a Public Health Agency of Canada program.

We are hosted at St. Francis Xavier University (StFX) in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, which has a rich history in social justice beginning in the 1920s with the Antigonish Movement through to the founding of the Coady International Institute after WWII. The Institute is well respected worldwide as a centre for leadership education about community-based development. Situating the NCCDH here furthers StFX’s deep commitment to applying knowledge to social change.
