The IPHA executive would like to extend a huge thank-you to all the attendees of our Aboriginal Healthcare event. The turnout was our largest ever, and the event was overall a great success! A special thank-you goes out to our three amazing speakers: Dr. Michael Robidoux, Dr. Cory Harris, and Ms. Demi Mathias. Their insight into the topic of Aboriginal healthcare was very valuable and much appreciated. Stay tuned for more panel events coming up in the future!
