The Aboriginal Children's Hurt & Healing Initiative (ACHH) was invited to share the work at Research Canada's Indigenous Health Research Caucus on June 5th on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.

The ACHH is a national CIHR funded research initiative with a mandate to better understand how Aboriginal children express their pain so it can be treated from both an Indigenous and Western perspective. The ACHH was represented by Dr. Margot Latimer, Sharon Rudderham and John Sylliboy.
