Listening Sessions

Tribal Engagement and Indigenous-Led Public Health Disaster Research

Please join us for an upcoming series of Listening Sessions designed to establish a community of practice for professionals who are currently involved in or have previous experience with tribal engagement or Indigenous-led public health disaster research.

Members of the community of practice may be at any career stage—from students to seasoned professionals. We hope to bring together disaster researchers of Indigenous descent as well as those who engage in public health research or outreach in collaboration with Indigenous populations or in tribal regions.

The first four sessions will be held virtually, and the fifth and final session will coincide with the 48th Annual Natural Hazards Workshop:
