2019 Labelle Lecture will be presented by Dr. Jennifer Walker

19 Jul 2019

The 28th annual Labelle Lecture will be presented  on Thursday, November 7,  2019 by Dr. Jennifer Walker, associate professor, School of Rural and Northern Health at Laurentian University, who holds a Tier II Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Health. She is also the Indigenous Lead for the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences

She has Indigenous (Haudenosaunee) family roots and is a member of the Six Nations of the Grand River. She has a PhD in Community Health Sciences (Epidemiology specialization) from the University of Calgary and a BSc from the University of Waterloo.

Her work focuses on Indigenous use of Indigenous health and health services data across the life course, with a focus on older adults. She collaborates closely with Indigenous organizations and communities to address health information needs.

The annual Labelle Lecture was created 28 years ago to honour Roberta Labelle, who was one of the founding members of CHEPA. Her death in 1991 was unexpected, and occurred when broad recognition for her research in health economics was just starting to emerge. 

The lecture will take place on Thursday Nov. 7, 2019 from 3 p.m. to 4:30 pm in HSC 1A4, followed by a reception in the Farncombe Atrium.
