On the Land Indigenous Education Program: May 2022

TRANSFORM HF members had the opportunity to participate in the On the Land Indigenous Education Program led by Dr. Angela Mashford-Pringle In May 2022.

Participants explored culturally-safe, strengths-based, and healing-informed clinical and research practices through hands-on, land-based learning.

TRANSFORM HF is very grateful to Dr. Angela Mashford-Pringle, her team, and the Elders and Cultural Knowledge Keepers and Helpers who made On the Land such an impactful experience.
