  • Reviewing and vetting Indigenous curriculum through a community based approach.
  • Working with Indigenous and non-Indigenous students (pre-med, undergrad, & residency) to provide unique experiential learning opportunities through placements in Indigenous communities.
  • Assistance in learning about Indigenous protocols, communities, and Elders.
  • Connecting faculty, staff, and students with Indigenous communities for initiatives, advocacy, and other activities that enhance Indigenous health.
