When: April 27-30, 2017
Where: Drury Plaza Hotel, 828 Paseo de Peralta, Santa Fe, NM
The AAIP Cross Cultural Medicine Workshop is held each year in Santa Fe, NM at the same time as the annual Gathering of Nations Powwow and is designed to provide participants with the unique experience of learning about the collaboration between western and traditional medicine. The workshop identifies strategies to improve communication between American Indian/Alaska Native patients and health care professionals and describes current health issues affecting Native communities in both reservation and urban settings. The complement of both approaches provides the opportunity to honor traditional healing practices while respecting the balance of mind, body and spirit.
This workshop is for any health care professionals, medical students, pre-med students, residents and physicians who work in or will work in Native communities and are interested in learning strategies to best treat Native patients in a culturally competent way.
The 2017 workshop is AAIP's 25th annual and we hope all of you can attend. The 2017 meeting will be held at a different venue, the Drury Plaza Hotel, and will feature some changes in the format of the workshop educational sessions. More on that to come!
