Webinar: Strengthening Tribal Public Health Partnerships

Strengthening Tribal Public Health Partnerships
Monday, September 23, 2019
Noon to 1 p.m. PT
Tribal community members work hard to protect and promote the health of their people. In the September session of Hot Topics in Practice, Tamara Fulwyler shares how non-tribal public health agencies can better collaborate with tribal entities to support these efforts.
This one-hour webinar will provide a brief overview of tribes in Washington, encouraging participants to understand how historical events shape the health of these communities today. It will also discuss important concepts like sovereignty and the process of consultation as important components for successful collaborations with tribal governments. The presentation will close with a review of resources for government-to-government relationship building, including NWCPHP’s new online toolkit.
Register today to better understand the benefits of effective collaborations between state, local and tribal public health agencies.
Speaker slides are posted on our website the morning of the webinar. Each session is recorded and made available by the next day. Audio is available through computer or by phone.
Hot Topics in Practice is a monthly webinar hosted by the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice. Guest speakers from local, state, tribal, and national organizations present on current issues affecting public health practice.
