Skin Spectrum Summit
Saturday, November 25, 2023
The Indigenous Skin Spectrum Summit is dedicated to improving the cultural competence of Canadian healthcare providers and giving practical advice on providing dermatologic care to Indigenous patients.
First held in March 2021, the Indigenous Skin Spectrum Summit is a special session of the Skin Spectrum Summit addressing specific challenges in treating Canada’s Indigenous community.
The second Indigenous Skin Spectrum Summit will be held during National Indigenous History Month in Canada. As we recognize the history, heritage and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in Canada, we must also acknowledge the persistent health gaps that these communities experience.
