Native American Education: Promoting Strength-Based Community
Native Americans are making significant gains in higher education, yet still experience high levels of poverty and major health disparities. Because we come from strength-based cultural communities and have learned to be resilient, we can create more opportunities for success. What does it mean to be resilient? How can education promote a path to healing? Why is cultural identity important to living a healthy life? These topics and questions will be explored during this presentation.
No RSVP necessary. Questions please contact Dr. Jioanna Carjuzza at [email protected] or 994-3921.
