This is a forum to provide an opportunity for American Indian Veterans of all wars to share powerful and important experiences with the community, to air questions and concerns and encourage discussion dependent on questions raised by attendees.
The dialogue among the speakers aims to explain how the state is providing services to the tribal community, create awareness on resources available through non-government organizations, discuss and identify barriers to healthy living.
Vendors who provide services to Arizona American Indian veterans and their family members will be present throughout the day.
