A Kawe (gathering) of UIO leaders, staff, and community members.
This informational and training webinar is designed to obtain feedback from Urban Indian Organizations (UIOs) on what the current experiences are as it relates to infection control threats and emerging and remerging diseases. We also aim to provide the latest data and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance for health care and community health workers on the current COVID-19 Delta and Omicron variants.
Breakout sessions will allow for UIOs to share their experiences with each other, followed by a presentation addressing UIO concerns from CDC’s Dr. Abigail Carlson. The session will close with a facilitated Q&A session.
