Addressing Cultural Risk for Indigenous Peoples Accessing Health Care   


February 25, 2020
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Indigenous people do not always feel safe when accessing health care in Canada. In order to achieve health equity for Indigenous peoples, we must address individual, systemic and structural racism within health care. Dr. Loppie’s past presentations include one entitled Anti-Aboriginal Racism in Canada: A Social Determinant of Health. In this webinar, Dr. Loppie will build on this presentation with key recommendations for reducing cultural risk for Indigenous peoples in health care environments.
