What's Working in Our Communities: Native Solutions for Public Health Issues

Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 4:30 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
As more public health program development and implementation is being done with Native communities to reduce health disparities, it is important for us to examine what strategies are working and making a positive impact on our communities. Sharing what’s working in our communities strengthens our capacity as Indigenous people and allows us to build a healthy future for our Native youth. This poster session will provide an overview of various efforts – research and programmatic strategies – on “what’s working” to reduce health disparities in our Tribal communities.
