Decolonizing Health Care with Dr. Alika Lafontaine
The Canadian Health Coalition is marking National Day of Truth and Reconciliation with a conversation with Dr. Alika Lafontaine, the new president of the Canadian Medical Association.

Host Anne Lagacé Dowson will discuss with Dr. Alika Lafontaine, the president of the Canadian Medical Association, what decolonizing health care means to him and his award-winning work dedicated to eliminating discrimination and racism in health care.

Dr. Alika Lafontaine is the first Indigenous president of the Canadian Medical Association. He is an anesthesiologist in Grande Prairie, Alberta. Active with the Indigenous Health Alliance, Dr. Lafontaine is committed to health transformation and eliminating discrimination and racism in health care. Dr. Lafontaine sits on more than a dozen committees and boards related to Indigenous health. His use of storytelling and descriptions of real patient encounters and his own experiences as a Métis, Oji-Cree, Pacific Islander are changing mindsets on health care.

National Day of Truth and Reconciliation honours the children who never returned home from residential schools, as well as survivors, their families and communities.
