S2302 MISSION POSSIBLE: SERVING NATIVE AMERICANS IN THE SOUTHWEST
March 7 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The program will highlight the work of Americans for Native Americans (ANA) which is dedicated to improving the quality of life for Native Americans in the Southwest on the Hopi, Navajo, and Zuni reservations. By partnering with schools and organizations, ANA provides essential goods and programs which foster self-reliance and mutual understanding. Founded in Doylestown in 1991, ANA focuses primarily on services for children (food, clothing, school supplies, and health services), scholarships and clinical opportunities for nursing students at the University of New Mexico in Gallup, New Mexico, and veterinarian services on these reservations. Come to see, hear, and discuss the challenges and successes of this mission.
