Improving Indigenous Health
Better care leads to better health for Native communities. Supporting Native students on their academic journey is how we build the Indigenous health care workforce.
We also tackle the challenges of American Indian and Alaska Native health and care by building interconnected relationships within tribal communities. We share our medical expertise while honoring Native knowledge.
