The Southern Ontario Aboriginal Diabetes Initiative seeks an experienced event planner to provide conference coordination services to organize the delivery of SOADI’s annual conference in Niagara Falls.
Overview of Conference
SOADI’s 15th annual conference will take place over 2 days targeting front line workers from across Ontario as well as an evening social for community members.
On September 12th, 2016 SOADI Central delivered a shawl making workshop at the Wahta Cultural Centre.
During the workshop, SOADI Central spoke about our bodies being sacred and how we only have one body therefore it is so imperative to take care of it. The Wahta community members made their own shawls during the workshop. SOADI Central talked about having an open mind, being positive and putting those good thoughts into their shawls while creating them.
As mentioned in the SOADI 13 grandmother moons curriculum,
It was a great day on the course in support of Native Men’s health. On August 5th 2016 SOADI hosted our second annual Taking Aim FORE Men’s Health Golf Tournament at Niagara Falls Golf Club. 54 golfers teed it up for men’s Diabetes awareness. Special Thanks to Grandmother Renee for her opening prayer at dinner, Warren Hill from Niagara’s Ole Tyme BBQ for the whole hog BBQ, Herbie Barnes for his great Master of Ceremonies work, and sponsor Biodetic Foot cream as well.
