Developing a platform for American Indian health leadership to come together and establish plans for improving the health of their communities.

In the past, tribal and urban Indian health leaders in Montana have had few opportunities to meet, learn from each other, and collaborate.

At their request, in 2016 we began organizing quarterly meetings of the tribal health and urban Indian health center directors. This group has become known as the American Indian Health Leaders.

The American Indian Health Leaders group provides the first regular forum for collaboration among tribal health leadership, urban Indian health centers, the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, and other health system partners.

This initiative provides support for the American Indian Health Leaders group to meet and pursue their collaborative goals. The initiative also provides funding for leadership development for participant organization staff.

If you are interested in learning more about the American Indian Health Leaders group or in applying for leadership development support, please contact our office.
