Indigenous Health and Wellness Day

April 25-26, 2024

On Indigenous Health and Wellness Day, NACHP welcomes around 100 Wisconsin middle and high school students to Madison for a fun day of learning about the health sciences. In addition to hands-on opportunities (such as learning how to fill a prescription), team-building activities and wellness and relaxation exercises, current American Indian health professions students share how they successfully navigated pre-college and college programs. Our goal is to help younger students imagine themselves joining our campus community one day. The event held in partnership with UW–Madison, Madison College and Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council-NARCH. Read about the 2024 Indigenous Health and Wellness Day.
