The UBC Learning Circle welcomes everyone to be part of the learning journey!
We welcome you to take part in the UBC Learning Circle, an ongoing video conference and computer webinar initiative that encourages sharing knowledge about our health and well-being. The UBC Learning Circle is a partnership between the Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health and the First Nations Health Authority. Our intention is to provide educational and informational opportunities to health care workers and professionals in First Nations communities. The knowledge comes from your sharing of successful health practices and interventions, speakers, researchers and other experts.
The topics we cover can often be sensitive or emotionally triggering. Please make sure that you are looking after yourself. If at any point you feel that you need to talk to a friend, Elder, counselor, or family member: don’t hesitate to do so. Check out our Counselling Support Page.
