Native American Nurses leading a Culture of Health

January 18, 2018

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET

During this Culture of Health webinar,  we celebrated and learned  about the National Alaska Native American Indian Nurses Association (NANAINA). NANAINA, an important member of the Future of Nursing:  Campaign for Action Diversity Steering Committee, was founded in 1993 with the mission of uniting American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) nurses and others who care for AI/AN people to improve the health and well-being of AI/AN people.

Speakers included Lisa Martin, PhD, RN, president of NANAINA; Regina Eddie, PhD, RN, RWJF nursing and health policy collaborative fellow.

Participants:

  • Learned about initiatives of NANAINA to promote a culture of health and well-being throughout Native communities.
  • Discussed a recent study of the Navajo school system and its food environment, including potential policy implications.
  • Engaged with members of the Campaigns Diversity Steering Committee and learn how your Action Coalition can engage with NANAINA locally.
  • Heard about the Native American Learning Collaborative launching in 2018, which will feature a series of webinars co-hosted by the Future of Nursing:  Campaign for Action and NANAINA.
