Description

Join us for a conversation on Indigenous issues with HIV in Canada.

For 15 minutes, Dr. Randy Jackson (bio below) casually discusses how colonization, isolation, and stigma affect the experiences of Indigenous people living with HIV in Canada. The following time is an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and engage in general conversation. No academic experience needed!

When/Where? On Thursday, August 22, 2019 from 6:00 to 7:30PM in Turtle Lounge, located in the Centre for Indigenous Studies, 563 Spadina Ave., North Borden Building, Toronto, ON, M5S 2J7 (near College and Spadina). There will be someone waiting on the main floor to take people upstairs.

This is a FREE event with food and drinks. However, space is LIMITED so attendees must register for their free ticket on eventbrite using the following link:

Presenter:
Randy Jackson is Anishinaabe from Kettle and Stony Point First Nation and has become an expert in HIV in Indigenous communities in Canada. Dissatisfied with existing research, which tended to focus excessively on pathologizing Indigenous people, Jackson works with communities to find a different perspective–one grounded in cultural world views. Jackson continues to study how Indigenous ways of knowing the world can influence lived experiences of HIV. Randy is also Assistant Professor in the McMaster School of Social Work, Department of Health Aging and Society

This is a Better than Ted: Talking HIV Research event. Between a long day and getting home, join a friendly and inclusive chat on bold ideas about HIV research: treatment, care, policy, theory, and artistic representation. Brought to you by the Urban Centre for Health Solutions at St. Michael's Hospital, Better than Ted: Talking HIV Research.

The views, ideas, and opinions expressed during the discussion are not those of the Centre for Urban Health Solutions, St. Michael’s Hospital or Universities Without Walls
