2021 National Gathering of Graduate Students: June 2021
The National Gathering of Graduate Students (NGGS) is a national annual gathering that brings together Indigenous graduate students doing research on Indigenous health and well-being. The NGGS is meant to foster belonging and support for Indigenous graduate students, as well as a place for skill and capacity building and knowledge transfer. By learning with and from other graduate students, Indigenous faculty, and allied scholars from across the country, the NGGS is a culturally relevant and scientifically rigorous meeting.
In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are moving forward with a virtual format for this year's NGGS, with events taking place throughout the month of June. Recognizing that this pandemic has been difficult for our students, the theme of NGGS 2021 is "Nurturing our Wholeselves" with a focus on events for self-care and relationships.
