A powerful new documentary film by Guelph filmmakers Vlyte Media and Ward 1 Studios; the 20-minute film The Journey is part of the Canadian Nurses Foundation campaign to address health care inequity in the Indigenous population. The Journey follows the work of three young Indigenous nurses, each driven by a desire to care for their people and bridge gaps in the health care system.

"Why are we having more issues in health than non-Indigenous people?"

Panelists:
- Leah Carrier, Blackfoot Registered Nurse, MSc student, Research Coordinator
