Day 2 of the inaugural First Nations, Métis and Inuit Health Research Symposium will continue today on the University of Manitoba’s Bannatyne Campus.

The symposium is bringing together community and academic researchers, students, Elders, health leaders and policy makers throughout Manitoba who share the common goal of improving the health of indigenous communities.

Professionals are covering a number of issues, including discussions on diabetes, mental health, conceptions of wellness, and population health.

The Manitoba Network Environment for Aboriginal Health Research (NEAHR) Program is putting on the symposium, in partnership with the U of M and the Faculty of Medicine.

The two-day symposium will wrap up in the Frederic Gaspard Theatre (Formerly Theatre A), Basic Medical Sciences Building, 727 McDermot Avenue.
