Cultural Determinants of Health Webcast Series
Improvements have been gained in Indigenous health, but we are not closing the gap – it is time to turn attention beyond health determinants and talk about the role of culture.
The Cultural Determinants of Health (CDoH) Webcast Series will explore a holistic definition of Aboriginal health as encompassing the wellbeing of the whole community. The key to this holistic conception is social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB): a positive state of mental health and happiness associated with a strong and sustaining cultural identity, community, and family life that provides a source of strength against adversity, poverty, neglect, and other challenges of life.
Filmed from a state-of-the-art studio, the CDoH Webcast Series will be filmed in five 1.5 hour parts and will invite a diverse panel of experts.
