Circle of Resilience: Empowering Indian Country in a Virtual World
Washington, D.C. (April 1, 2021) – The National Council of Urban Indian Health’s 2021 Annual Conference, themed the Circle of Resilience: Empowering Indian Country in a Virtual World, early bird registration is now open. The conference will highlight high-priority issues such as COVID-19, mental health disparities, community outreach, Missing and Murdered Indigenous People (MMIP), and policy that is directly affecting American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) populations in Urban Areas.
“Our ancestors thrived through times of adversity and this last year has emphasized how resilient we truly are,” said National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) CEO Francys Crevier (Algonquin). “Urban Indians have been versatile in adapting to a virtual world since the start of the pandemic a year ago, especially in the healthcare field. The National Council of Urban Indian Health wants to further empower and rejuvenate urban Indians and the organizations that support them as we cross over this historical milestone.”
NCUIH is excited to host an array of subject matter experts and representatives from federal agencies and congressional members with multiple opportunities for networking throughout the conference. This new virtual world brings a unique set of challenges while offering leaders the opportunity to innovate within their organizations to better reach the communities they serve. This year’s Annual Conference will offer three days of information and collaboration focused on culture, medicine, wellness, and best practices to empower and equip urban Indian organizations at the local level.
