The goal is to to hear about people’s healthcare experiences as well as their needs and cultural insights.
Lamarr added that the feedback will be vital in “crafting a healthcare system that truly understands, respects, and includes Indigenous perspectives.”
The first in a series of meetings happening across the Valley will be held on January 31rst at the Renfrew Legion, from 6-8pm.
A poster for the event detailed that it will take place in a culturally sensitive environment and that smudging would be available.
