Indigenous Health & Well-being Initiative

Summer School

IHWI 2015 Summer School:

The Inter-disciplinary Initiative (IDI) on Indigenous Health and Well-being at Western University (London, Ontario), is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Summer School on Community Based Research in Indigenous Health and Well-Being, to be held May 10-13, 2015

This summer school is aimed at training Indigenous and non-Indigenous researchers how to conduct research that can make a real, lasting difference in the Indigenous communities we work with and for.

This year we have a special school that is aimed directly at First Nation communities and Aboriginal organization staff in South Western Ontario. We are holding a school where local people may learn from communities already engaged in research, where these mentors from other regions can share best practices and learning lessons with those interested in learning more about or undertaking research. Our mentors (experts) are people who have engaged in successful partnership based research that has led to meaningful change at the community level.

Registration is limited to 30 partcipants. More details coming soon!
