Please join us online or in person for the April Program of the Alaska Native Injury Atlas on April 7th.
A short AKEN business meeting will be held at 11:30 and the program will begin at noon.
The Alaska Native Injury Atlas
Presenter: Hillary Strayer, Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium
The Alaska Native Injury Atlas is an incredible resource for evaluators and researchers. It is published online, as well as in pdf and hard copy. This report provides an overview of injury among Alaska Native and American Indian people in Alaska. It describes the leading causes of injury deaths and injury hospitalizations statewide and within each region. It presents stories about successes in tribal injury prevention and describes challenges to injury prevention efforts in Alaska. Hillary will introduce us to the Atlas and talk about the process and challenges of producing a resource like this, and how they hope it will be used.
To join in person: UAA Center for Human Development, 2702 Gambell Street, upstairs boardroom. As always, please feel free to bring your lunch. We'll have coffee and light refreshments.
