UNM HSC Center for Native American Health Sponsoring Tribal Leaders’ Public Health Symposium June 26-27
“From Kernel to Corn Pollen,” is the title of a two-day conference June 26-27 being hosted by the UNM Health Sciences Center for Native American Health. The conference will be held at the Embassy Suites Hotel.
Representatives from Tribes, Pueblos, Nations and off-reservation health organizations are scheduled to share their experience and expertise on a range of American Indian health topics, including understanding government for health, using data and research to become better advocates for health, and transferring knowledge “leader to leader.”
Participants were asked to register as teams of 2-3 individuals, including at least one recently elected or appointed Leader, with various levels of experience.
The conference is presented by the UNM Center for Native American Health in partnership with an organizing committee chaired by former Zuni Pueblo Governor Norman Cooeyate.
