Feeling welcomed: Creating space for Indigenous voices in brain and mental health research

March 14, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm


Research on Indigenous communities has historically been conducted using a one-sided approach, with researchers having little knowledge of Indigenous culture, minimal concerns surrounding community needs or desires, and without giving back to the community. In this lecture intended for people from all backgrounds and professions, Dr. Melissa L. Perreault will discuss how this is the time to give Indigenous communities a voice in research on brain and mental health that is guided ethically and culturally.

Everyone is welcome! This public in-person event is free, but tickets are required.
