National Tribal Health Reform Training

The National Indian Health Outreach and Education (NIHOE) Initiative hosted the National Tribal Health Reform Training in Mystic Lake, Minnesota, on April 18-19, 2012.  The two-day conference assisted stakeholders in educating their communities on the basics of the Affordable Care Act and the Indian Health Care Improvement Act.  Health reform experts, education campaign leaders, and other industry experts convened to disseminate information, to learn what information is needed, and to launch new e-resources for health reform consumers.


This two-day training provided community representatives with tribal-specific health reform education opportunities, consumer-oriented materials to use in local outreach efforts, and training to help them actively manage education campaigns for four consumer groups, including individual consumers, health directors, tribal governments and employers.
