Native Health Careers Conference
NativeAmerican Research Center for Health (NARCH) and United Tribes Technical College
The purpose of this conference was to raise awareness of health career opportunities for American Indians. I provided a keynote presentation on AI Heatlh Careers, and I was able to moderate two panels: Current AI health professions students (medicine, pharmacy, public health, epidemiology, occupational therapy) and a Current AI Health Professionals Panel (Medicine, Nursing, Research, Epidemiology). Approximately 80 people attended the conference, and several students are now even more interested in pursuing health careers!
