For the very first time, the National Indian Health Board will be seating a board of 24 Native youth from around the country to engage throughout the year in Indian health policy and programming efforts. The inaugural meeting of the TYHAB will focus on developing the capacity of Native youth to engage in Indian health policy solutions, tell their personal story and advocate for changes in the healthcare and public health systems important to their communities. The TYHAB and the Native Youth Health Summit will provide youth with key opportunities for relationship- and skill-building that allows them to return home feeling empowered, connected to other Native youth and well equipped to be the next generation of advocates for improved Indian health.
The first year of the TYHAB and the 2017 Native Youth Health Summit will feature the following themes:
1] Indian Health Policy and Advocacy Training2] The Affordable Care Act: What Native Youth Need to Know 3] Behavioral Health and Wellness4] Health Workforce Development
The application period will close at 5:00pm ET on JANUARY 24, 2017.
