OTTAWA, ON - The National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO) is hosting a national conference in Ottawa, Ontario from November 24-26, 2009 at the Crowne Plaza and Marriott Hotels.

“NAHO is a leader in First Nations, Inuit and Métis health research and public education in Canada,” says Dr. Paulette C. Tremblay, Chief Executive Officer of NAHO. “NAHO’s 2009 National Conference, Our People, Our Health is an opportunity you don’t want to miss.”

NAHO is bringing Aboriginal health care professionals from across Canada, the United States and abroad to host the most engaging and informative national health conference this year.

The following are some of the topics to be discussed:
• Strategic Planning for Health.
• Developing Health Capacity.
• Health Research.
• Health and Well-Being.
• Traditional Medicine in Contemporary Contexts.
• Aboriginal Health Human Resources.
• And more...

Dr. Tremblay goes on to say, “Our People, Our Health is the largest and most important gathering of Aboriginal health care professionals in 2009! While we expect 700 participants participation is limited, so please register now.”

Delegates will explore recent innovations and existing or emerging trends in population health research as they relate to reducing disparities among First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities.
