2019 Annual Conference

The Aii Annual Conference calls together the best thinking in Native American Wellness and Diabetes Prevention. It’s the largest gathering of your peers—people you can relate to, learn from, and stay connected to throughout the year.

From receiving information on model diabetes prevention programs and the opioid crisis in Indian Country to how to plan and implement a health fair to the use of herbal remedies and a more traditional approach to nutritious meals, this conference is for you!

Note: Due to unforeseen circumstances the 2019 post-conference Native Fitness Training and STRESSCARE: Mastery and Mentor Training workshops have been cancelled. Please contact Laurie Smith at with any questions.

Join us in San Diego, California, as we converge for the best of what matters most to you.
