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.
