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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional in-person and web-based trainings are being planned for this year. Please stay tuned for more details by signing up for updates through our email list at the bottom of this page.
August – December 2019
If you missed the opportunity to attend our in-person training in June, this is your chance to become a part of our online cohort and learn step-by-step how to develop a tribal climate adaptation plan that integrates health and wellbeing. The first webinar is on Tuesday, August 6. There will be a total of 10 one-hour webinars, taking place on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month through December.

Climate & Health Webinar: Public Outreach & Dissemination, Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 1:00 pm ET.

The webinars can help viewers more effectively communicate the health impacts of climate change and in their communities.
