Highlights included a fireside chat with network leadership and members of the Patient Governance Circle Executive, a keynote presentation by cultural safety facilitator Harley Eagle, and the launch of our new Land Acknowledgment Learning Series.

Thank you to the speakers, moderators, panelists, attendees, and organizing team!
