UBC Faculty of Medicine 2022 Commemorative Event for Orange Shirt Day | National Day for Truth and Reconciliation
September 27, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
On behalf of Dermot Kelleher, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine and Vice-President of Health at UBC, we invite you to join us in coming together in a concerted effort to reflect on the purpose of Orange Shirt Day, now also known as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This important event will take place virtually on the morning of Tuesday, September 27th, 2022.
The event will be guided by Derek Thompson – Thlaapkiituup, Indigenous Initiatives Advisor and Namaste Marsden – Masemtxoxw, Director, Indigenous Engagement. Dean Kelleher, together with Faculty leadership and community, will vow to reaffirm and deepen their commitment to advance this work in collaboration with First Nations and Indigenous peoples of British Columbia and beyond. We continue to work with a determined and deliberate purpose towards ending racism against all Indigenous peoples in both academic and health care systems, and to move ever forward in upholding and recognizing First Nations and Indigenous peoples’ rights that align with the commitments made by UBC in its Indigenous Strategic Plan.
Please note, given the discussion topic, this event may go beyond the listed end time of 11:30 am.
