Office of Indian Education Webinar | Indigenizing Health Career Pathways Across Generations: A Closer Look at Instruction and Practices in American Indian and Alaska Native Education
August 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm CDT
August 29 at 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm Eastern
The White House Initiative on Advancing Educational Equity, Excellence, and Economic Opportunity for Native Americans and Strengthening Tribal Colleges and Universities (WHI TCU), along with the U.S. Department of Labor and the U.S. Department of Education, will host a virtual four-part dialogue series that addresses multiple topics that impact employment for the American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) community.
The fourth and final dialogue will focus on AI/AN health career pathways education. The dialogue will offer perspectives from experts from the AI/AN community who have participated in, advocated for, and benefited from a process of indigenizing curricula, education program design, and delivery for AI/AN individuals with and without disabilities. The speakers and featured practices span generations: from early health pathways engagement in a program geared toward high school youth, to a college nursing program designed to include college students who live in remote areas, to a nurse and professor and tribal elder who has been advocating for and providing nursing education that engages students’ aspirations and culture.
