The Statewide Executive Committee gathers on a quarterly basis to discuss oral health issues impacting American Indian communities in Arizona. A representative from each tribe is welcome to attend and share information about oral health, tribal progress or they may request information. The AAIOHI works as a technical support resource to tribes, assisting them in outreach, education materials, training, workforce development, data collection and policy development. The Initiative would like each tribe to have its own tribally lead oral health coalition by 2020.
