Please join NIAAA researchers and Alaska Native community members in a conversation about innovative prevention strategies for indigenous communities–in particular, how tapping into a community’s culture can serve as a cornerstone for youth alcohol and suicide prevention efforts.

The discussion will describe a toolkit developed by NIAAA grantees in collaboration with the Yup'ik Native Alaskan community. We will also discuss how culturally appropriate and community-based principles may be applicable in youth prevention efforts in similar communities across the country.
