Tribal Nursing Homes: Traditional Foods, Traditional Lives Webinar

When: May 25, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This presentation will introduce a tribal nursing home collaborative and its work by reviewing the history, foods, ideas, programs, challenges, laws, and recommendations that have influenced and currently affect preparing and serving traditional foods in tribal nursing homes.

You will learn specific steps you can take to advocate for traditional foods and traditional living as a way to honor and respect elders.
