WEBINAR: Creating Engaging Vaccine Educational Materials for Native Americans


The National Native Network with the Indian Health Service Clinical Support Center (Accredited Provider) present a webinar.

The Tribal Vaccine Equity Project aims to provide American Indian/Alaska Native communities with the culturally tailored training, resources, education and technical assistance to build vaccine confidence, increase vaccine access and mitigate the disproportionate burden of adverse outcomes from public health threats through the use of vaccinations.

This presentation will discuss how the Albuquerque Area Southwest Tribal Epidemiology Center incorporated sociocultural strategies to create engaging COVID-19 vaccine educational materials for Native Americans that can be applied to different health promotion and disease prevention topics.  Several vaccine resources created for Native Americans will be shared with participants.
