Profile Your Work, submit an abstract!

Through the call for abstracts, we will profile the work of our academic and community partners who are involved in Indigenous health throughout Canada who can present their work through workshops, oral abstracts and posters. Although most of the research abstracts will have a typical research format, such as background, methods, results and conclusion we recognize that many Indigenous ways of knowing many not fit into these categories, especially for workshops.
