WHAT THE TRAINING FEATURES
The training will provide steps, tools, templates, case studies, and other resources that seek to streamline the adaptation planning process and make it easier for tribal health and environmental professionals to understand and address human health exposures and impacts within tribal communities. This training will summarize the latest data and literature on the exposures and impacts of climate change that may impact the health of tribal community members. It will also describe how to identify and select appropriate strategies to address these exposures and impacts.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Native American and First Nations tribal health, environmental health, environmental, and/or other tribal professionals who may be involved in climate change preparedness and adaptation planning for tribal communities, or who work for organizations that serve tribal communities. We are seeking regional cohorts to participate in the training together and will be offering 2 free hours of technical support for up to five cohorts. You do not need to be part of a cohort to participate in the training; however, to be eligible for the free technical support, you must form a regional cohort that includes at least two professionals from a tribal serving region representing at least two different departments or agencies. We will select five regional cohorts to coordinate during the training and receive technical support with a preference for cohorts that:
- Include 3+ members
- Represent at least one tribe
- Include a health professional
- Represent a non-tribal partner agency
You can indicate your interest in being matched with others in your region when you register.
