STARS in Public Health Workshop

Support for Tribal Accreditation Readiness & Success

About the Workshop

The Support for Tribal Accreditation Readiness and Success (STARS) in Public Health Workshop aims to strengthen Tribal capacity for public health accreditation by providing a dynamic learning environment for learners at every level. The workshop is designed to support Tribal Health Departments (THDs) as they navigate the public health accreditation process.  This convening brings together Tribal public health professionals and leaders from across the US to share knowledge, build skills, and gain ground on exploring or preparing for public health accreditation.

The STARS in Public Health Workshop goals are to:

  • Build an Indigenous community of practice in public health.
  • Explore the benefits of Tribal public health accreditation and quality improvement.
  • Share stories about successes and challenges in Tribal public health practice.
  • Reaffirm the value of Tribally driven approaches to improving performance.
  • Honor the diversity of Tribes and pathways to public health accreditation.
