The Healthy Start TA & Support Center (TASC) is thrilled to be partnering with Dr. Janelle Palacios to host the StoryWork Project. Dr. Palacios is a Salish and Kootenai nurse midwife who was raised on the Flathead Indian Reservation in northwest Montana, and her goal is to bring her passion and expertise to the StoryWork Project to help guide participants toward their respective local native history. The StoryWork Project series will include intensive workshops on five Fridays from January through March, during which participants will discover how American Indian/Alaka Native (AI/AN) maternal and child health has been shaped through historical policies aimed at assimilating and disenfranchising AI/AN people from land, resources, culture, religion, community, and family. Participants will then learn how to integrate this historical knowledge and shape community anchor stories that will stir up empathy and effect change. The deadline to apply to join the StoryWork Project is COB Friday, December 30, 2022.
