Dr. Lopes will be going back out East to volunteer at NAIG 2023! She’ll be leaving on July 14th!

Pjila’si = means welcome in the Mi’kmaq language. Dr. Lopes is hoping to use some of the new words she’s learned from this Indigenous language because she has been selected to volunteer as a Sports Chiropractor at the upcoming @NAIG 2023 (North American Indigenous Games) in Halifax, Nova Scotia!

➡ Dr. Lopes will be working right up until the morning of her departure date, Fri. July 14th, and will be adding on some days to explore Nova Scotia, since this will be her first time in this province. She’ll return back to @361clinic on Mon. July 31st.

➡The North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) 2023 will bring together more than 5,200 athletes, coaches and team staff from 756 Indigenous Nations celebrating, sharing and reconnecting through sport and culture with the help of 3,000 volunteers.

➡The 10th North American Indigenous Games will host competitions in 16 sports within 21 venues and 52 fields of play across Kjipuktuk (Halifax), Dartmouth and Millbrook First Nation. Competition will begin July 15 and run through the 23rd of July.

➡Stay tuned to learn more about this upcoming event, and follow along to see what Dr. Lopes gets up to in a month’s time! We hope to share some of the cultural information that she has learned about as part of her training for this event.

➡Plan ahead and book your chiro appointments accordingly!
