A Transcontinental Workshop- Deconstructing colonial legacies and understanding implications for public health equity and justice: A framework for action for researchers and practitioners

8:00am - February 1, 2022 | Timezone: US/Central
National American Indian & Alaska Native PTTC
Registration Deadline:

Workshop Dates: February 1st at 8am, February 2nd at 8am, February 8th at 8am, and February 9th at 8am CST. 

Join a transcontinental team from the University of Global Health Equity (Kigali, Rwanda), the Native Center for Behavioral Health (University of Iowa, Iowa City, United States) and the Prevention Research Center for Rural Health (University of Iowa, Iowa City, United States) to understand the enduring impacts of colonialism on our work in public health. We will discuss the personal and systemic transformation required to dismantle deeply rooted histories of colonialism. We envision rebuilding systems of care that honor and value community knowledge and restore power and resources to indigenous peoples and other people impacted by colonization. Participants will leave with skills and strategies to change their own research and practice in public health.
