Regional Tribal Environmental Health Summit Series

The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) is partnering with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (TSDR) to host a series of free regional summits on the topic of environmental health in Indian Country. Each summit will feature Tribal leaders, environmental health practitioners, subject matter experts, and federal partners engaging on topics relevant to each region. The summits are intended to connect people from different professional backgrounds and Tribes, communities, federal agencies, Tribal organizations and state and local entities to address various environmental health and environmental justice issues affecting Indian Country. Each summit will be designed for participants to:

  • Exchange knowledge,
  • Share best practices,
  • Provide policy recommendations, and
  • Identify solutions to address environmental health and environmental justice/health equity issues affecting Tribal communities.

Each summit will be free of charge but will require registration. Limited travel support will be available to Tribal participants. A total of four summits will be held between 2023 and 2024, with plans to host four more the following year. If your Tribe is interested in hosting a summit, please contact Brett Weber, NIHB Environmental Health Programs Director, at [email protected].
