National Collaborating Centre for Indigenous Health hosts Mamow Ahyamowen
Back in October 2022, Mamow Ahyamowen had the privilege of presenting findings from the mortality analysis to a national audience through a webinar hosted by the National Collaborating Centre for Indigenous Health.
Loretta Loon (Sitting Member for the Weeneebayko Area Health Authority), Dr. Jennifer Walker (Epidemiologist, Health Services Researcher & Advisor), and Maureen Gustafson (Knowledge Translation Specialist) shared the story of Mamow Ahyamowen through a presentation titled:
Past, Present, and Future: The Story of a Northern Ontario First Nations Health Data Partnership
The webinar told the story of Mamow Ahyamowen through lenses of self-determination and Indigenous Data Sovereignty. The webinar:
- Explored Mamow Ahyamowen’s work as an example of First Nations leadership in Indigenous Data Sovereignty;
- Highlighted the variation in mortality-related health inequities experienced by First Nations communities in northern Ontario; and,
- Recognized the importance of meaningful knowledge translation in supporting self-determination.
