Child Maltreatment Research Summit: Novel Methods from a public Health Perspective

Day 1's session will focus on presenting the results from three recent studies using the ALCANLink data. Each presentation will last about 30min with 30min of facilitated group discussion after to allow the audience to participate in interpreting, suggesting further research, and identifying ways that this information could be useful for prevention.

Day 2's session will focus on methods to allow a deeper dive into the statistics behind the latent class analysis, developing a cumulative incidence estimate, and standardization. These methods are transferable to a variety of health topics and useful tools to a researcher.

2017 Elders & Youth Conference

The First Alaskans Institute Elders & Youth Conference is a dynamic convening that brings our Elders and Youth together to strengthen cultural continuity through inter-generational relationships that deepen their abilities to be leaders across Alaska and the world. This year marks the 34th annual statewide convening and First Alaskans Institute continues to be honored to steward this gathering of our most precious community members.

The conference will be held on Monday through Wednesday, October 16-18, 2017, at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage, Alaska.

First Alaskans Institute proudly announces: "Our 2017 conference theme “Part Land, Part Water – Always Native.” which speaks to how our identity as indigenous peoples is informed by our deep connection to our lands and waters, no matter where we live, and recognizes that Alaska always has been – and always will be – a Native place. Our theme was crafted using the thoughtful contributions and ideas of our 2017 Statewide Elders & Youth Council, FAI staff, and other members of the community."

Elders always FREE to attend.
Early Bird special for Youth registration is $45 (ends October 2nd). $55 for youth registration after October 2nd.
