Jun 1, 2018

Today’s guest on Morning Line featured Dana Diehl, the Director of Wellness and Prevention at the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium.  She spoke with Morning Line host Frank Chythlook about Garden of Roses, a camp for girls who are survivors of sexual abuse.

The Garden of Roses is a weekend filled with outdoor activities, healing circles and Native traditions with other Alaska Native Families. The purpose of ANTHC's Domestic Violence Prevention Initiative (DVPI) is to increase awareness and education about domestic violence and sexual assault (DV/SA) by collaborating with tribal partners such as first responders, medical and care providers, and community members on outreach, training and advocacy efforts.

The camp is a three days long and is held over the weekend of August 3-5, marking the camps 6th anniversary. At a previous camp, a young girl entered in shy but left blossoming. The camp is currently recruiting for 15 campers, with space still available  Travel scholarships are available for campers and their guardians untill June 29, 2018.
