Public Health 2019 Indigenous and Black Peoples public health gathering

5:30–7:30 p.m. (ET)
Public Health 2019 Conference
Shaw Centre, Room 202
55 Colonel By Drive
Ottawa, ON

Note: Registration is required for this free event. PH 2019 registration is not required.

This gathering will provide an exclusive, safe space for Indigenous and Black Peoples to speak their realities, share their expertise, hopes and aspirations and create opportunities for solidarity and support.
More public health organizations are making a concerted effort to address the impact of racism on health and well-being.

For example:

Indigenous and Black practitioners have identified the need for knowledge exchange, support, and network development that speaks to their unique experiences of settler colonialism or anti-Blackness in the context of public health practice. This gathering will provide a forum for open discussion responsive to the needs of participants.
