“This workshop series is the culmination of over 20 years of work, education, experience, and traditional knowledge. It is my personal response to the failures of Health Canada to produce effective Indigenous tobacco control strategies or reduce rates of tobacco use among Indigenous populations. This is the foundation for developing my own Indigenous Health Strategy that I hope will be adopted nation wide.”
