CCUIH's community health organizing aims to leverage the work of our members, increase the capacity of the urban Indian health care network, and address policy inequities in order to create greater access to health services for American Indians in urban areas. The consortium meets quarterly with UIHO key staff and board, collaborative partners, and community stakeholders. CCUIH's quarterly meetings serve as a forum to disseminate pressing urban Indian issues, trends, and relevant policy changes and legislation. CCUIH also hosts the annual California Urban Indian Health conference. CCUIH's quarterly meetings and annual conference serve to advance planning for urban Indian health care providers, as well as provide tools and resources needed for the short and long term vitality of UIHOs.
