The health of a tribe can be measured in the physical vitality of its people, but also in their spiritual and mental well-being. These issues and more are the topic of the 2019 Great Plains Conference in Omaha examining American Indian behavioral health.

“Wakanyéja: A Conference on American Indian Behavioral Health” will bring together tribal community members, respected elders, health advocates, academics, biomedical scientists, and tribal health representatives to help better understand community issues and work to address health disparities. More than a dozen conference speakers will engage with these issues from multiple view points, including physical, mental, cultural, and spiritual factors in behavioral health.

Both days of the conference will take place at the Truhlsen Campus Events Center at UNMC.

This event is open to the public ($75) and students ($15). View the program schedule and register by April 9 at:
