This conference aims to inspire, motivate and celebrate the work of our partners, grass-roots organizations and all participants that work to improve the quality of health for our children. This gathering provides a wonderful place for practitioners to build networks, share stories, explore partnerships and learn from experts on methods to advance their knowledge and practice to prevent Native American childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes.
