The theme of the 3rd Tribal Environmental Health Summit was Sustaining Long Term Partnerships and Projects with Native American Communities and the Summit provided participants with the opportunity to:

  • Showcase their latest research on Tribal environmental health science
  • Renew and solidify personal and professional networks
  • Increase stakeholders understanding of Tribal environmental health policy needs and goals
  • Explore a variety of relevant career paths

Over 130 people attended and represented a variety of tribes, universities, and government agencies.  Highlights of the meeting included the student poster reception in which 28 students participated, the rich discussions, and the potential for future collaborations.  Stay tuned for TEHS 2020!
