Public health practitioners, researchers, and policy experts are invited to submit proposals for the NIHB 2019 National Tribal Public Health Summit, taking place May 13-15, 2019 at the Albuquerque Convention Center in Albuquerque, NM.
These are the details on the Environmental Health and Climate Change Track:
Environmental health focuses on the interrelationships between people and their environment with an emphasis on promoting human health and well-being, and fostering healthy and safe communities. Environmental stressors, from both the natural and built environment and climate change pose unique risks for AI/AN populations across Indian Country. These stressors can affect everything from fish and animal migration patterns to water availability and sanitation, allergen levels, air pollution, severe weather occurrences, physical and mental health problems, prevalence of vector borne disease, and a multitude of other factors. Facing these and other challenges are an important component of maintaining holistic health.
Proposals are due by February 11, 2019. Learn more.
