NEON Lights Chapter presents
Indigenous Health - Truth and Reconciliation Commission Health Related Recommendations - What Next?

October 25, 2016
  12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time

At the 2016 National Health Leadership Conference in Ottawa, the debate topic of Indigenous Health was voted as a key issue for Canadian healthcare leaders to address. Roger Boyer II is working within the N’Mninoeyaa Aboriginal Health Access Centre as the Primary Health Care Manager providing “air support” to the primary health care providers within the eight First Nations/Partner Sites from Sault Ste. Marie to Sudbury. As a manager, he is a certified Improvement Advisor from the Institute of Healthcare Improvement, Boston, MA. Through his eyes, healthcare is a microsystem which surrounds the client to improve their wellness. Roger will tell the story of how the debate topic relates to the macro and micro of the healthcare system and what we as healthcare leaders can do to "finally close the gap in Indigenous health disparities and create lasting health equity" (Dr. Alika Lafontaine, The Great Canadian Debate 2016).

Featured Speaker: Dr. Roger Boyer II, CHE, Primary Health Care Manager, N’Mninoeyaa Aboriginal Health Access Centre

For the past nine years, Roger has sat under the guidance of elders listening and becoming a participant within Anishinabek ceremonies and culture. Moving to the North Shore in 2009, Roger served the Mississauga First Nation as the Health & Social Service Director providing support to a model of health and wellness which tried to bring honor to both Anishinabek and Western thought for two years. Through his eyes, healthcare is a microsystem which surrounds the client to improve their wellness.
