The National Tribal Health Conference is the leading Indian health event in the nation. The event attracts over 800 Tribal leaders, health directors, advocates, researchers, and federal partners. This year’s conference theme, “United Tribal Voices Advocating for Healthy Native People“ will provide key opportunities for leaders in Indian health to network, participate in Tribal consultations and listening sessions with federal agencies, and choose from over 80 hours of training on leading Tribal healthcare and public health programs and policy.

Tracks include:
1. Legislation, Regulation and Consultation to Improve Tribal Health

4. Native Youth Leadership in Health: For Adults and Youth
