Turtle Island Series: Tackling Anti-Indigenous Racism in Health Care – Part 1

Open to all Unifor members.

Anti-Indigenous racism has profound negative impacts on the health and wellness of Indigenous people, their families and communities in Canada. Deep-seated racism within our health care systems have made it unsafe for many Indigenous peoples to access the services and care they need.

There are many ways for us to take action and make comprehensive change.

Join this webinar and listen to the recommendations of two Indigenous leaders in health care:

Gina Smoke, Unifor’s Indigenous Liaison, will moderate this powerful panel:

Dr. Alika Lafontaine , Indigenous physician of Cree and Anishinaabe heritage from Southern Saskatchewan/Treaty 4 territory. Dr. Lafontaine lectures across Canada on the role that bias, discrimination and racism has on patient care and is a champion for Indigenous health transformation with the Indigenous Health Alliance.

Cheryl Ward, Interim Director of Indigenous Health and the Provincial Lead for the San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training program at the BC Provincial Health Services Authority. The San’yas training program helps health care professionals understand what equitable, culturally safe, and high quality health care looks like for Indigenous people.

This workshop will be hosted online through Cisco WebEx, participants will be emailed information on how to join. You must RSVP.
