Qujanaq Nuuk! We had a great weekend in Nuuk presenting at the NunaMed conference, where Ceporah turned everyone into animals in icebreaker activities during her presentation on Makimautiksat; Taha presented on the te(a)ch program and computer literacy; Gwen gave a keynote address on Qaujigiartiit; Del shared her child and youth programs in Rankin Inlet; and our friends at Aqqiumavvik (Kukik) and Ilitaqsiniq (Jesse) shared their phenomenal community and land-based programs as part of a panel on youth initiatives. This opportunity to collaborate with colleagues in Kalaallit Nunaat is so important. We need direct flights to Nuuk to keep it going!
