BC Indigenous Health Nursing Student Caring Series

Virtual Online Symposium Series Schedule

Considering the new “normal”, we have decided to relaunch our symposium virtual series. Our symposium series of previously invited keynote speakers ended June 2021. Feedback from past participants have requested more webinars and enjoyed the open dialogue in a safe place to express their concerns, ask their questions, and voice their opinions. We invite you to join us for our virtual series of webinars featuring health care professionals and leaders advancing Indigenous health and wellness.

Please see below for upcoming or past virtual webinars. If you have missed any, all presentations are recorded and available for viewing on the keynotes tab.
