Tribal Climate Health Training Opportunities

For the past two years, the Pala Band of Mission Indians and its partners have worked to develop the federally-funded Tribal Climate Health Project to build the capacity of tribes around the nation to prepare and address the health effects of climate change. This program is now preparing to offer a series of trainings at the upcoming conferences and workshops listed below. We would appreciate your help spreading the word to professionals that have a role in developing and managing climate change, health, and/or environmental initiatives for tribal communities. If you’ll be at these events, we’d love to meet you in person. Please connect by emailing Additional in-person and web-based trainings are being planned for this year.
