Indigenous Peoples’ experiences and realities within the Canadian Healthcare system: What’s the impact on health outcomes?

March 21 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


Indigenous peoples have consistently faced health inequities in the Canadian Healthcare system, which have contributed to poorer outcomes. This disparity is still a reality for many Indigenous peoples seeking care. It is important to understand how systemic racism and stereotypes influence the care they receive today. The SBME Indigenous Engagement Committee in collaboration with the UBC Learning Circle will be hosting Indigenous speakers from different backgrounds to share the realities of their experiences in the Canadian Healthcare system. Our goal for this panel is to help spread awareness of existing issues in the healthcare system and discuss actionable steps we can all take towards minimizing the health inequities within the Canadian Healthcare system.
