Indigenous Health

SRPC's Indigenous Health Committee is in the process of developing a series of virtual, educational events to bring awareness and provide learning opportunities for all SRPC members about Indigenous health education. 
We encourage all SRPC members to participate.

The SRPC will record the Indigenous Education Series and make the videos available to all members for self-guided learning. We will share instructions on how to access the recordings after we post each one.

If you have questions about how to register or access the video, please contact
