Inspiring the Next Generation: Community-Based, Culturally-Competent Research & Care Conference

Fall 2016 Grant Recipient


Kathleen A. McManus and Rebecca Dillingham (Infectious Diseases and International Health) The conference will highlight how two First Nations communities in Saskatchewan, Canada developed community-based, culturally-competent research and care to address the issues of HIV, Hepatitis C, and substance use. Social determinants of health are known to have strong influence on many diseases. As the world strives to end HIV and cure Hepatitis C, we need to prepare the next generation for challenges where health and humanity intersect. The conference will emphasize the impact of health policy, politics, and stigma on the social determinants of health and health outcomes, especially as they relate to vulnerable populations.
