About the Biennial Summit
The American Indian Health Commission (AIHC) is committed to advocating for improving the health of all Tribal people. The two-day Summit is a unique and strategically significant event for tribes in Washington State. We bring together Tribal leaders, state legislators, Tribal and urban Indian health organization staff members, state agency representatives, Federal Region 10 representatives and the Portland Area Indian Health Service to discuss Tribal legislative and programmatic health priorities. Over the years the Summit has become a vitally important forum for strategic Tribal-State planning and collaboration in Washington.
The work of the summit will be to produce actionable and accountable plans for work to be done by the State, Tribes, the AIHC and other partners throughout the next two years to improve the health of American Indians and Alaska Natives in our State.
