Sign Up for Email Updates

NIHB Email Updates

Want to get NIHB updates in your email? Learn more about options below.

Join the Climate and Health Learning Community (Climate Listserv) to receive two kinds of mailings:

  • Climate health-specific mailings from NIHB – these share updates, resources, events, and opportunities hosted by the National Indian Health Board. For example, you might receive a standalone blast about an NIHB climate health funding opportunity or a Climate and Health Learning Community webinar.
  • The weekly Public Health Broadcast – this newsletter contains news, opportunities, resources, and events from NIHB and partners as well as other information that NIHB would like to share with Tribes. Though not a climate-specific newsletter, this is the only place that NIHB typically shares external climate resources and opportunities. The Broadcast contains information about climate health, environmental health, general public health, and other public health topics and projects.
  • If you are only on this mailing list, you should NOT receive stand-alone blasts for other projects or NIHB conferences. If you are interested in climate newsletters but prefer fewer mailings, this is the best option for you!

Join the Public Health Contacts list to receive:

  • The weekly Public Health Broadcast, which contains news, opportunities, resources, and events from NIHB and partners as well as other information that NIHB would like to share with Tribes. This is not a climate-specific newsletter but contains information about climate and environmental health as well as general public health and other public health topics and projects.
  • Standard NIHB mailings related to public health topics, including standalone blasts for NIHB conferences and other projects.
  • If you are only on this mailing list, you will not receive NIHB climate-specific mailings and will only see climate information when it is highlighted in the Public Health Broadcast.
