Cross Cultural Medicine Workshop - CANCELED


April 23rd, 2020 All Day - April 26th, 2020

AAIP ANNOUCEMENT March 12, 2020

In the Association of American Indian Physicians (AAIP) attempt to err on the side of caution and wellness, the Board of Director’s regretfully inform you the AAIP 27th Annual Cross Cultural Medicine Workshop scheduled April 23-26, 2020 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Albuquerque, NM has been canceled.  

Travel may force attendee’s to be in harm’s way by causing people to be in close proximity to others on airlines, at airports, in the hotel and through group interaction are but a few of the circumstances considered pertaining to exposure for contracting the COVID-19 and directly impacts this decision. Universities curtailing travel is another consideration. 

Should you have questions or concerns, please contact Tom anderson at 405 946.7072 or email: [email protected]

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

 

The AAIP Cross Cultural Medicine Workshop is scheduled for April 23-26, 2020 at the same time as the annual Gathering of Nations Powwow and is designed to provide participants with the unique experience of learning about the collaboration between western and traditional medicine. The workshop identifies strategies to improve communication between American Indian/Alaska Native patients and health care professionals and describes current health issues affecting Native communities in both reservation and urban settings. The complement of both approaches provides the opportunity to honor traditional healing practices while respecting the balance of mind, body and spirit.  To sponsor this event and to assist a student or cover a speaker, donate online.

This workshop is for any health care professionals, medical students, pre-med students, residents, physicians and anyone who works in or will work in Native communities and are interested in learning healing strategies for Native patients in a culturally competent way. The 2020 workshop is AAIP's 27th annual and we hope you can attend. To register for this event online, see link below.
