Join us on September 30th for a two-hour special webinar “Out of the Darkness and into the Light”


Special Webinar:
Out of the Darkness and into the Light

Thursday, September 30, 2021 12:00 – 13:00 (ET)

CNS Webinars are free to all participants
The Truth and Reconciliation Commission estimates that many thousands of Indigenous children died while attending residential schools. The legacy of the residential school system affects almost every Indigenous family and the effect on communities is ever present. This includes the food and nutrition research practices that failed to protect the health and safety of residential school children.

On September 30 – National Day for Truth and Reconciliation – The Canadian Nutrition Society (CNS) is hosting a special webinar, Out of the Darkness and into the Light, to learn about how government policies created conditions of malnutrition in Indigenous Peoples, and how Indigenous Peoples, including children, continue to be affected disproportionately by malnutrition and diet-related health problems. This webinar will be an opportunity to acknowledge past harms and ongoing colonial practices that negatively impact the health and wellbeing of Indigenous Peoples, and to learn how we can move forward knowing that there are many shining examples of fully participatory nutrition research projects that are occurring from a place of respect, honour, trust and collaboration.

Featured Speakers and Presentations:Ian Mosby, PhD – Ryerson University
“Hunger, Human Experimentation and the Legacy of Residential Schools”

Treena Wasonti:io Delormier, PhD, PDt – McGill University
“Bridging capacity for ethical research with Indigenous communities: The Kahnawake School Diabetes Prevention Project Code of Research Ethics”

Moderated by: Noreen Willows, PhD – University of Alberta

Learning Objectives:

  1. To be aware that Indigenous communities establish community level research ethics policies to assert self-determination in knowledge creation and translation.
  2. To gain an appreciation of the roles and responsibilities in the practical application of ethical research principles in an Indigenous community context.
  3. To understand the challenges and benefits associated with community-level ethics research practices in Indigenous communities.
We hope that you can join on this day to commemorate the history and legacy of residential schools and learn about transitioning nutrition research Out of the Darkness and into the Light.
