First training of Facilitators celebrated on the Maniilaq Association blog

The 40-hour training of facilitators was lead by Lisa Wexler and Diane McEachern, who developed the training, and Roberta Moto, Tanya Kirk, Evelyn Day and Lisa Ellanna, who provided insight and guidance to the process to ensure that the training and the PC CARES approach are culturally-based and respectfully done.

About thirty people from the Northwest Artic region of Alaska, representing 11 villages, attended, in addition to Kawerak Wellness staff from the Bering Strait Region and representatives from the Yukon-Kuskokwim region.
