The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) will be hosting a National Tribal Epidemiology Meeting on September 10, 2013 in Albuquerque, NM. This meeting will bring together local, state, federal, tribal and Indian Health Program representatives and others involved with American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) health or data access to promote AI/AN health.
Quality health information and data are dependent on the multilateral exchange of information, and identifiable health data are essential to effective public health efforts. The purpose of the meeting is to continue previous efforts to improve access to health data for AI/ANs in the United States. The goal of this meeting is to identify barriers to data sharing and develop recommendations to increase access to AI/AN health data for tribal and public health authorities working to promote AI/AN health. By bringing together key stakeholders and senior-level decision makers, we hope to forge enduring partnerships to enhance public health practices and benefit AI/AN communities.
This one-day meeting will take place September 10, 2013 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Mountain Time at the Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown, 2600 Louisiana Boulevard NE, Albuquerque, NM. Participants will include epidemiologists, data stewards, leadership from tribes, local, state, federal, Urban Indian health organizations, and other interested parties. We look forward to your participation. Please see the attached proposed agenda for an outline of the meeting’s content.

The Tribal Epidemiology Subcommittee consists of epidemiologists and others working with American Indians/Alaska Natives (AI/AN) in state, local, territorial, and tribal health agencies and epidemiology centers. For the past 10 years, CSTE has been successful in bringing together key players for public health surveillance, health data sharing, and public health authority in Indian Country despite more complex issues surrounding the responsibility for public health services for AI/AN populations.CSTE has conducted assessments of tribally-operated and urban Indian health care facilities to assess their case reporting practices and to identify barriers to tribe and provider participation in public health surveillance. The 2009 assessment of epidemiology capacity included questions on tribal epidemiology; a brief summary of the tribal epidemiology results also includes recommendations for improvement.
