Registrations are now open for PRIDoC 2020!
PRIDoC, the Pacific Region Indigenous Doctors Congress, is an Indigenous-led event for Indigenous doctors, medical students, researchers, health professionals and allies. Held biennially, PRIDoC gathers us around shared issues of concern related to the health and wellness of the many Indigenous communities and nations throughout the Pacific Region.
PRIDoC 2020 will be held from September 14-18, at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre in Vancouver, Canada.
PRIDoC 2020 will be hosted by the Indigenous Physicians Association of Canada (IPAC) in partnership with ‘Ahahui ‘o nā Kauka, Te Ohu Rata o Aotearoa (TeORA), the Association of American Indian Physicians (AAIP), the Australian Indigenous Doctors’ Association (AIDA), and the Medical Association for Indigenous People of Taiwan (MAIPT).
Over 400 physicians, residents, medical students, and other health advocates from throughout the Pacific are expected to gather in Vancouver for the PRIDoC experience.
Canada has a rich and diverse Indigenous population comprising the Métis, First Nations and Inuit Peoples. This event will take place on the unceded, traditional territories of the Coast Salish – the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
This year’s theme is Connecting to the Spirit of The Land. This exceptional event will feature health and medical presentations important to Indigenous wellbeing, cultural events, as well as cross-national networking opportunities. https://pridoc2020.com/register
