Date: 14 Jan 2016

Presented by: Dr. Alison Gerlach, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy

Room: T206, UBC School of Nursing (3rd floor of UBC Hospital)

Early childhood intervention (ECI) programs are increasingly recognized for their potential in promoting children’s health and well-being, and appear to be ideally positioned to play a vital role in fostering child health equity. Currently, there is a lack of research on ECI programs in the context of Indigenous families and children in Canada.  This seminar will present the findings of a critical qualitative inquiry undertaken in partnership with the Aboriginal Infant Development Program of British Columbia.
