The goal of the conference is to present and practice strategies in the areas of assessment, policy development, and assurance that can promote the development of local food systems and improve community health, particularly on tribal lands.
Call for Abstracts – Abstracts for oral presentations and posters on recent research and program initiatives relevant to indigenous health promotion and local food system development, as well as stories that examine the important role of traditional food production, gathering, and preparation for tribes.
