Program Highlights

This Conference will create the opportunity for various native and non-native people to come together to become better informed and collaborate about implementing actions with tribes and tribal communities to increase the number of native public health professionals.

The first day will include several presentations on the health disparities and health needs of AI/AN/NH people, and the need to build a culturally competent public health workforce. We will have an opportunity to hear directly from native leaders, the Department of Health and Human Services, and current recruitment, retention and future strategies being done by academic institutions.

Beginning on day one and continuing through day two, each participant will be assigned to a group that will be charged with discussing, identifying, and developing solutions and actions that CDC/ATSDR and it's partners can and will take to support the ability of native students to pursue careers in public health. This process will culminate in the attendees having clearly identified some next steps for tribes, tribal organizations, academic institutions, and Federal agencies to take in addressing the need for an increased native public health workforce in which we can all be held accountable.

It is intended that this conference will be an annual event that will continue to guide and focus collective efforts throughout Federal agencies and academia to work effectively with tribes to build public health capacity.
