Educators’ Forum: Promoting Effective STBBI, HIV, Hepatitis C and Harm Reduction Education with Indigenous People of BC
PAN presents the Educators’ Forum in partnership with the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA). This professional development opportunity gives participants skills and cultural competence in a variety of topics. CATIE, Vancouver Coastal Health, and YouthCO/ Yúusnewas are also partners on the Educators Forum.
In 2021, COVID gathering restrictions means the Educators’ event was virtual. It ran March 23-25. Learn more and view program.
