About the Event:

Please join The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) for the National Tribal Health Conference on September 25 – 28, 2017 in Bellevue, WA. The National Tribal Health Conference is the leading Indian health event in the nation. The event attracts over 600 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. The National Indian Health Board, along with our partners at the Area Indian Health Boards, are at the forefront of national policy – with both the Administration and Congress – to improve the quality of and access to health services for our people nationwide. We look forward to sharing our story and uniting the Tribal voice at this year’s National Tribal Health Conference. We hope you can join us! The tracks at the 2017 NTHC will create a dynamic opportunity for Tribes and their partners to advance sustainable health care systems in which American Indians and Alaska Natives easily access reliable, high quality, and culturally driven health care. All sessions offer content for both Self Governance Tribes (those contracting and compacting to run their own health system) and Direct Service Tribes (those receiving healthcare directly from the Indian Health Service). Tracks include: 1. Legislation, Regulation and Consultation to Improve Tribal Health 2. Native Health Infrastructure 3. Maximizing Third Party Revenues and Expanding Patient Care Opportunities 4. Native Youth Leadership in Health: For Adults and Youth 5. Public Health Policy and Systems
