The University of Saskatchewan’s health science colleges and schools invite health professionals, Indigenous health service organizations, students, community partners and key Indigenous stakeholders to this two-day Gathering in Saskatoon, Sask. March 15 and 16, 2018. To set the foundation for the event, the planning committee engaged indigenous community members and invited them to identify health priorities; identified priorities include mental well-being, access to services, chronic diseases and promising approaches to wellness.

The Gathering will also showcase approaches to developing reciprocal, respectful partnerships between communities and researchers. Four internationally recognized Indigenous health researchers will be invited to speak and guide sessions organized around the health priorities. Concurrent sessions will feature a mix of panels and nationally recognized local speakers to explore these topics in more detail. On Thursday evening, we will partner with the Indigenous Mentorship Network for a networking and youth engagement event.
