Each year, APHA selects a local organization to support. The APHA 2024 host city charity is the Dream of Wild Health, one of the longest continually operating Native American organizations in the Twin Cities. When you donate to Dream of Wild Health, you support their mission to restore health and well-being in the Native community by recovering knowledge of and access to healthy Indigenous foods, medicines and lifeways. Your gift supports Native youth leadership, healthy and traditional food access, and Indigenous seed stewardship. Attendees are encouraged to join in the effort to make an impact by making a gift through the registration process.
