For 15 minutes, Dr. Randy Jackson casually discusses how colonization, isolation, and stigma affect the experiences of Indigenous people living with HIV in Canada. This is followed by an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and engage in general conversation. No academic experience needed! This is a FREE event with food and drinks. However, space is limited so attendees must register.   Presenter: Randy Jackson Randy Jackson is Anishinaabe from Kettle and Stony Point First Nation and has become an expert in HIV in Indigenous communities in Canada. Dissatisfied with existing research, which tended to focus excessively on pathologizing Indigenous people, Jackson works with communities to find a different perspective–one grounded in cultural world views. Jackson continues to study how Indigenous ways of knowing the world can influence lived experiences of HIV. Randy is also Assistant Professor in the McMaster School of Social Work, Department of Health Aging and Society This is a Better than Ted: Talking HIV Research event. Between a long day and getting home, join a friendly and inclusive chat on bold ideas about HIV research: treatment, care, policy, theory, and artistic representation.
