Event description

Description

The School of Health Policy & Management and the Faculty of Health are honoured to present the 2019-2010 Indigenous Lecture Series on Indigenous Health and Decolonisation. These six lectures will bring Canada's most respected Indigenous leaders in healthcare to the York University campus to engage in a discussion of the pressing health issues facing Indigenous Peoples in Canada and how we, as an institution, can move forward in our process of decolonisation. Each of these lectures will consist of a 30-45 minutes presentation by the keynote speaker, followed by a 45 minutes facilitated discussion with 2-3 of our faculty members. A small lunch will be provided on a first-come-first-served basis.

On October 10th, 2019, we are honoured to host Dr. Lynn Lavallée as our second speaker.
