Overview of Wabanaki Public Health Initiative

At the New England ATTC Advisory Board Meeting, guest speaker Lisa Sockabasin, Director of Program & External Affairs at Wabanaki Public Health, presented an inspirational look into the Wabanaki Tribe. Lisa discussed the plans to build two indigenous wellness centers in Main to serve the indigenous population made up of four tribes in the most rural areas in Maine that would connect the population with their culture to support their recovery efforts while integrating their culture and language that is just as important to them as their connection to nature and outdoors.
