Join us virtually on Wednesday, November 9th, 2022 from 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm (PST), for “Transformative Change: Creating the BC First Nations Health Authority” with Grand Chief Doug Kelly – Cheam First Nation. In this third session of the REDI Indigenous Speaker Series, we will learn about the work and leadership of GC Doug Kelly in the creation of the First Nations Health Authority, and his experiences and insights as the former Chair of the First Nations Health Council. GC Kelly will reflect on what we can learn about the self-determination of BC First Nations, what’s needed to strengthen the work in relation to Truth and Reconciliation, and how health and academic systems can better plan and respond to the unique needs of First Nations in BC.
