Important Updates

  • SAVE THE DATE!  We are pleased to announce that - on Friday, November 16th 2018 - the McGill Research Centre for Physical Activity and Health (PATH), in partnership with the Kahnawà:ke Schools Diabetes Prevention Project (KSDPP), will host its 5th annual symposium, entitled: Indigenous Health and Wellness: Reflections on Research and Reconciliation.  This year's symposium will engage Indigenous scholars, interdisciplinary community-based health and wellness researchers, as well as not-for-profit community organizations in a series of panel presentations that address the following key themes:
    • the relationship of health and wellness research to reconciliation;
    • experiences building/supporting culturally-grounded health and wellness programs with Indigenous community partners;
    • knowledge dissemination approaches rooted in/supportive of Indigenous paradigms;
    • the educative potential of health and wellness research to settler reconciliation.
