NAEHCR Kick- Off Event (PDF)
Greetings! We would like to formally invite you to celebrate the New Year with us by attending the kick-off reception for our new project entitled, Native Americans Engagement in HIV Clinical Research (NAEHCR).
NAEHCR is a pilot project focused on improving outreach and collaboration with Native communities and HIV clinical research sites in Seattle and Denver.
NAEHCR is a partnership between the National Native American AIDS Prevention Center (in Denver) and the Legacy Project. NAEHCR seeks to engage urban Native American communities in Denver and Seattle in HIV clinical trials by working collaboratively with local trial sites.
We are holding the event as an opportunity to introduce the project and to hear feedback from community members. We also see this as an opportunity for Native community members to meet local HIV clinical research staff.
This will be a fun and casual event. Food and drinks will be plentiful.
The dinner will be held on January 5th, from 6:00 until 9:00 pm at the Wing Luke Museum, in the International District: http://wingluke.org/hours.htm
We are also looking for urban Native community members that might be interested in serving on our project advisory board. Board members will enhance the project by providing feedback on short-term planning, training, and evaluation over a five month period. Please let us know if you are interested or have recommendations for board members.
We look forward to seeing you!
