Indigenous, Local and Global Health Office

The future of health is better health. For everyone.

Welcome to the Cumming School of Medicine Indigenous, Local & Global Health Office – where we work every day to create the future of health and social equity. As a leading institution, we recognize the vital role we play at home and abroad, which is why we’re committed to collaborating with communities to create opportunity, advance equity and improve the health of people in marginalized settings.

Our commitment is expressed through many forms. From partnering with local organizations on immigrant health initiatives to working with Indigenous communities to address intergenerational toxic stress; from facilitating opportunities for students to learn about the social determinants of health to offering consultations to CSM teams conducting health research across the globe - our collaborative efforts work to harness University knowledge and resources to create a future where everyone is free from the barriers that create health inequities.

By staying connected, responsive and accountable to our communities, we’re creating the future of health - better health, for everyone.
