2019 AIHREA O.N.E. Pow Wow
The 13th Annual AIHREA O.N.E. Pow Wow on May 4, 2019 at the Johnson County Community College Gymnasium in Overland Park, Kansas will be hosted by the American Indian Health Research and Education Alliance (AIHREA).

AIHREA O.N.E. Pow Wow Grand Entry
The AIHREA O.N.E. Pow Wow began at Johnson County Community College after anthropology professor Sean Daley founded AIHREA, which is a collaboration between the anthropology department at the college and the Department of Preventive Medicine and Public Health at the University of Kansas Medical Center. The organization works to provide educational and healthy living opportunities for American Indian people. While the pow wow is meant to be a good time, the organization’s main objective is to have as many Native Americans in attendance get the health screenings available at the pow wow in order to diagnose and treat them as quickly as possible.
The AIHREA O.N.E. Pow Wow will feature American Indian singing, dancing, arts and crafts, and food. The O.N.E. (Our Nations Energies) Pow Wow will also offer free health screenings will include body mass index, blood cholesterol, blood glucose, blood pressure, lung function tests, heart disease and cancer risk assessments, hearing tests, vision tests and referrals to free medical care. Incentives will be given to people who participate in the health fair screenings.
