The half day symposium will showcase Aboriginal education and research taking place at Memorial University of Newfoundland. It will feature keynote speaker Dr. Michael Dan.

Dr. Dan’s presentation is entitled The impact of colonization on the health of Indigenous people in Canada.
In addition, the symposium will feature oral and poster presentation of research related to Aboriginal health. We would like to feature all important and innovative education and research activities Memorial is conducting in collaboration with Aboriginal People and communities. We therefore invite you to submit abstracts for the oral and poster presentation portion of the symposium.
