Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)/Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) Tribal Consultation Advisory Committee (TCAC)

The purpose of the TCAC is to provide an ongoing means for tribal representatives and CDC staff to exchange information about public health issues in Indian Country, identify urgent public health needs in American Indian/Alaska Native communities, and discuss collaborative approaches to addressing these issues and needs.  Two face-to-face meetings are held per year in conjunction with formal Tribal Consultation Sessions – typically one in Atlanta hosted by CDC/ATSDR and one hosted by a Tribe.
