In this episode of Arthritis At Home, Dr. Terri-Lynn Fox and Cheryl Koehn discuss the Arthritis Call to Action website, which has been launched by the Arthritis Community Learning Circle. As an important entry point into Truth and Reconciliation for the arthritis community in Canada, the website covers key topics such as Colonization, Indigenous Health, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action on Health (#18 to 24), and the Arthritis Community Learning Circle. Website visitors will also find current information on successful programs that incorporate traditional healing, and the latest arthritis research involving, and led by, Indigenous Researchers and Indigenous Participants in Canada.
Dr. Fox is from the Blood Tribe, within the Blackfoot Confederacy, and practices her Siksikaitsitapi ways. Dr. Fox has a bachelor’s degree in psychology; a master’s degree in sociology; and a doctoral degree in education.
