Description
The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) is excited to announce a special event taking place at the National Tribal Public Health Summit in Albuquerque, NM. This event is hosted as part of NIHB's Climate and Health Learning Community, which offers resources and activities for learning, networking, and information sharing. Not a member of the Climate and Health Learning Community yet? No worries! The event is open to everyone, but registrants will be added to the community to stay updated on future events and activities. The learning community is part of NIHB's Climate Ready Tribes project, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

This event at the Summit is an opportunity to bring together learning community members for an informal meeting to foster peer learning, information sharing, and relationship building. Set up as speed networking, this event will pair you repeatedly with different individuals for a brief introduction and discussion. NIHB will provide some sample questions for you to discuss, but feel free to talk about whatever you'd like - for example, how climate change is affecting your Tribe/the Tribe where you work, what type of work your Tribe/community is doing or would like to do to address climate change, and what types of partnerships have been valuable for your work.

You may be interested in this event if you are you are working on climate or environmental health in a Tribal community, at a Tribal organization, or with Tribal partners; are interested in climate change or how environmental harms are affecting your Tribe; have attended any of the Climate and Health Learning Community Events (or would you like to); or want to meet others who have similar interests or are working on similar activities. 

This event is sponsored by the Sierra Club: Rio Grande Chapter! Thanks to their generous sponsorship, this event will also include refreshments. More details coming soon.
