Ongomiizwin – Health Services to celebrate 50-year milestone – UM Today

Gala and symposium will highlight accomplishments, look to future

December 20, 2019 —

Ongomiizwin, the Indigenous Institute of Health and Healing in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its health services unit with a gala dinner and symposium on Jan. 23-24, 2020.

In 1969, the University of Manitoba started an outreach program to provide medical services and improve health outcomes in a few isolated communities in northern Manitoba and what is now Nunavut.

Over the ensuing decades, as the program expanded and was named the J. A. Hildes Northern Medical Unit (NMU), the university emerged as an international leader in Indigenous and circumpolar health care.

In 2017, the NMU joined with U of M units responsible for Indigenous health education and Indigenous health research to form Ongomiizwin.
