CRAC Update: July 10th, 2018

Morning Star Lodge attended a meeting with community partners File Hills Qu'Appelle Tribal Council and All Nations Healing Hospital in Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan on July 5th, 2018. The meeting was intended to allow partners within the Community Research Advisory Commitee (CRAC) to discuss updates and projected developments moving forward for dementia research projects such as the Canadian Indigenous Cognitive Assessment (CICA) project and the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA) project. 

The meeting consisted of introductions and an opening prayer, a review of a CCNA article written by Danette Starblanket, updates on the aforementioned projects and an update to the partners on Morning Star Lodge, and an open table discussion regarding the next steps of the CCNA project headed by Dr. Carrie Bourassa.
