Arizona Telemedicine Program webinar | Changing the paradigm: Who tells our story, shapes our destiny

1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
Arizona Telemedicine Program & Southwest Telehealth Resource Center

Join the National REACH Coalition in collaboration with the Arizona Telemedicine Program, the Southwest Telehealth Resource Center and the Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health as we continue this free webinar series.

Changing the paradigm: Who tells our story, shapes our destiny

Historically, in America, African American, Latinx, Native American, Asian American, Pacific Islander and Alaskan Native communities have had their stories mostly told by those from outside their communities, thus co-opting their history and experience, providing an inauthentic and incorrect narrative. The result is a shaping of the community’s prospects and well-being by others. These last three years of the COVID-19 pandemic have shone a harsh spotlight making this painfully clear.

This webinar will focus on the Native American community sharing how, through the process of communities reclaiming their history, they confront oppressive structures, promote and support healing and resilience, and by so doing, shape their destiny.
