  Posted on: March 6, 2017

Dr. Rod McCormick, BC Regional Innovation Chair in Aboriginal Child and Maternal Health and Professor in the School of Education, continues to lend his expertise on Indigenous health to national and international forums. Having recently returned from Beijing, China, where he attended the Application Development Workshop: Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD) Mental Health (read more here), as well as a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Best Brains Exchange in Iqaluit on Indigenous suicide prevention, McCormick will be off to Ottawa in June to present at a Parliamentary Health Research Caucus event on Indigenous Health Research in Canada. The event brings together around a dozen experts in Indigenous health research, and provides Members of Parliament and parliamentary staffers an opportunity to speak informally with the researchers about their areas of expertise.
