Celebrating National Indigenous History Month   

June is National Indigenous History Month, a time to honour the history, heritage and diversity of Indigenous peoples.

Can-SOLVE CKD is committed to working with Indigenous patient partners, Knowledge Keepers, community leaders, academics, and health care providers to ensure the best kidney health outcomes, while ensuring Indigenous knowledge and perspectives are reflected across our research projects and governance.

New video series brings traditional Indigenous knowledge into health research

The Knowledge Keepers in Research video series is a new resource to support meaningful and reciprocal relationships between researchers and Indigenous communities.

This eight-part series encourages health researchers to honour Indigenous ways of knowing and incorporate them into practice.

We are deeply thankful to the Kidney Foundation of Canada for this tremendous honour, which recognizes outstanding service and contributions to kidney research in Canada. The award was presented by Elizabeth Myles, Kidney Foundation National Executive Director, at the Can-SOLVE CKD Annual Meeting in Halifax.

The entire Can-SOLVE CKD community is grateful for the Kidney Foundation’s ongoing support and partnership!
