Please join National Indian Health Board (NIHB) for a climate learning community webinar: "2019-2020 Climate Ready Tribes Minigrant Project". This webinar will give an opportunity for the three NIHB Climate Ready Tribes minigrant grantees to present on climate health issues facing their communities and the work they have done to educate their Tribes about these issues.

This webinar will offer attendees the opportunity to learn from the grantees' work and experiences. Please come prepared to ask questions or share your own insights and experiences! This webinar is hosted as part of the Climate and Health Learning Community and is open to the public. The learning community is focused on knowledge exchange and members are encouraged to share information and build relationships with each other and the presenters.

Attendees will be asked to complete a short evaluation following the conclusion of the webinar.
