Tribal BEAR Project
The Tribal BEAR Project is a program of the Northwest AIDS Education and training Center, funded through the Minority AIDS Initiative of Ryan White Care Act. We provide a broad spectrum of HIV/AIDS training to tribal health clinics and Native substance abuse treatment centers in Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho and Alaska. Partnering with the Salish Kootenai College Center for Prevention and Wellness on the Flathead Reservation in Montana and the South Puget Intertribal Planning Agency in Washington State, the BEAR Project brings culturally sensitive training directly to busy tribal clinic providers, nurses, behavioral health, outreach, and other staff. Most clinics are located in remote areas where HIV-specific training is not typically available.
Women 4 Wellness
Women 4 Wellness is an annual health fair provided to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes area since 2009. W4W aims to improve the health of our area women through preventative education, health promotion, free screenings and test. Our goal is to help women become involved in their health care and to help them take the steps necessary to live healthy lives. Join us May 18th, 2017 at the Joe McDonald Health and Fitness Center.
