Public Health National Tribal - NEW MEXICO MAY 13-15, 2019
To advocate for the rights of all federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native Tribes through the fulfillment of the
trust responsibility to deliver health and public health services.

Established by the Tribes to advocate as the united voice of federally recognized American Indian and Alaska Native Tribes,
NIHB seeks to reinforce Tribal sovereignty, strengthen Tribal health systems, secure resources, and build capacity to achieve
the highest level of health and well-being for our People.

The National Health Board (NIHB) is a 501(c) 3 not for profit, charitable organization serving all 573 federally recog-
nized Tribal governments for the purpose of ensuring that the federal government upholds its trust responsibilities to
provide health care to the Tribes. Whether Tribes operate their own health care delivery systems through contracting and
compacting or receive health care directly from the Indian Health Services (IHS), NIHB is their national advocate. NIHB also
provides policy analysis on American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) health and public health services, facilitates Tribal
budget consultation, delivers timely information to all Tribal Governments, leads national Tribal public health programs,
assists with Tribal capacity building, provides national and regional Tribal health events, conducts research, and provides
training and technical assistance. These services are provided to Tribes, Area Health Boards, Tribal organizations, Tribal
Leaders and members as well as federal agencies and private foundations. NIHB works collaboratively with the Tribes,
through the Tribal health organizations, in the twelve IHS Service Areas, to accurately capture and present the Tribal
perspective in response to federal legislation, regulations and policy. NIHB also serves as a conduit to foster collaboration
between Indian Country and national and international organizations, foundations, corporations, academic institutions and
other key stakeholders, in its quest to advance Indian health.

Because NIHB serves all federally-recognized Tribes, our work must reflect the unity and diversity of Tribal values and
opinions in an accurate, fair, and culturally-sensitive manner. This objective is accomplished through the efforts of the NIHB
Board of Directors, which is comprised of representatives elected by the Tribes in each of the twelve IHS Service Areas,
through their regional Tribal Health Board or health-serving organization. Each Health Board elects a representative and an
alternate to sit on the NIHB Board of Directors. In Areas where there is no Area Health Board, Tribal governments choose
a representative. The NIHB Board of Directors elects an Executive Committee comprised of Chairman, Vice-Chairman,
Treasurer, and Secretary, who serve staggered, two-year terms and a Member-at-Large who serves a one year term. The
Board of Directors meets quarterly.

NIHB serves and represents all Federally Recognized Tribes through our Board of Directors and partnership with Tribal
Health Boards or health-serving organizations in each of the twelve IHS Service Areas:
•   Victoria Kitcheyan – Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska Tribal Council Member, NIHB Chairperson and Great Plains Area Representative
•   William Smith – Valdez Native Tribe Chairman, NIHB Vice Chairperson and Alaska Representative
•   Lisa Elgin – California Rural Indian Health Board Chairperson, NIHB Secretary and California Representative
•   Sam Moose –Director of Human Services at Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, NIHB Treasurer and Bemidji Area Representative
•   Andrew Joseph, Jr. – Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation Tribal Council Vice Chairperson, Northwest Portland Area Indian Health
    Board Chairperson, NIHB Member-at-Large and Portland Area Representative
•   Marty Wafford – Southern Plains Tribal Health Board Chairperson, Oklahoma City Area Representative
•   Donnie Garcia – Albuquerque Area Indian Health Board Chairperson, Albuquerque Area Representative
•   Kaci Wallette – Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribal Council Member, Billings Area Representative
•   Beverly Cook – St. Regis Mohawk Tribe Chief, Nashville Area Representative
•   Jonathan Nez – President, Navajo Nation, Navajo Area Representative
•   Phoenix Area – Vacant
•   Sandra Ortega – Tohono O’odham Nation Tribal Council Member, Tucscon Area Representative

The Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) has been changing the lives of American Indians and Alaska Natives for the
past twenty years. Congress established SDPI in 1997 to address the growing epidemic of diabetes in Indian Country and it
quickly grew into the nation’s most strategic, comprehensive, and effective effort to combat diabetes and its complications.
Once a year, the National Indian Health Board is proud to host SDPI programs from around Indian Country, and this year is
no exception. We are thrilled to welcome the SDPI program participants to the Annual SDPI Poster Session, once again at
the Summit Opening Reception, Monday, May 13, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, Ballroom B/C!

                   PUBLIC HEALTH
                   INNOVATION AWARDS
                   The Public Health Innovation Award were created to honor individuals, Tribes, organizations, and
                   programs that have enriched and improved American Indian and Alaska Native public health.
                   NIHB recognizes that public health is a Native traditional value, and that Tribes have led the
                   way in creating and implementing public health programming and services that align not only
                   with contemporary needs, but with cultural beliefs as well. The winners of these awards work to
                   improve health status, implement new programming, address long standing health disparities,
                   and/or increase the visibility of public health concerns.

                   This year NIHB received many deserving nominations from across Indian Country. Though we only
                   have three awards to grant, we would like to extend our thanks and congratulations to all of the
                   hardworking, dedicated nominees.

                                            The American Indian Public Health Resource Center
                                            (AIPHRC) was developed to provide technical assis-
                                            tance around public health initiatives to Tribes in the
                                            Northern Plains, Minnesota, and across the nation.
                                            While at North Dakota State University, Dr. Nadeau
                                            obtained her PhD in social and behavioral epidemi-
                                            ology and focused her research on breast cancer
                                            risk factors for American Indian women on the Turtle
                                            Mountain Reservation, a study that was the first of its
                                            kind. Through her work at AIPHRC, Dr. Nadeau has
                                            been able to train and teach Tribal communities in
                                            Minnesota on Indigenous Evaluation through a public
                                            health lens. Melanie also specializes in data analysis
and is great at working with Tribal communities and making data easy to understand and read. Dr.
Nadeau was able to build the American Indian Public Health Resource Center from a small center
to what the center is now - which operates on several grant projects that focuses on health equity,
maternal and child health, and opioid use. Melanie is also a mother and wife and keeps up with her
