Summer School of the 16th International Congress on Circumpolar Health

In June, Katelyn had the opportunity to travel to Oulu Finland and participate in the Summer School of the 16th International Congress on Circumpolar Health. Over the course of three days (June 6-8 2015), courses included Community-Based Participatory Research Principles and Practices in the North and Healthy Population in the Arctic.

Katelyn presented a poster on AICBR’s “ [pdf] Working Together to Achieve Healthier Lifestyles in Yukon and Northw.st Territories’ Communities” project. Following the summer school, Katelyn represented AICBR at the 16th International Congress on Circumpolar Health: Focus on Future Health and Wellbeing (June 8-11 2015) (http://icch16.oulu.fi/) with two presentations. A presentation and poster on "[pdf] Indigenous Community Food Security in Yukon Territory” and an oral presentation on the  "[pdf] Working Together to Achieve Healthier Lifestyles in Yukon and Northwest Territories’ Communities” project. This was a fantastic opportunity for AICBR to share their work with the circumpolar community and build collaborations with others working on health in the North.
