Participants share model programs and research, learn about prevalent health problems, and acquire practical skills for use in community settings. Opportunities to share knowledge and support one another’s efforts, to network and develop partnerships are built into the program.
The conference organizers represent Aboriginal and Native American organizations in Canada and the United States.
