Vision to Action: Achieving Health Equity in Indian Country

  • The specific aims are to: (1) Engage tribal and native community partners and researchers in planning and identification of research opportunities to ameliorate behaviorally- and socially-based negative health conditions; (2) Build capacity in health disparities research through a series of workshop discussions/trainings about the latest advances in indigenous and Western research methods, policies, processes, and approaches; (3) Create, compile and disseminate partnership tools and measures. This conference‚Äôs premise is that a culturally tailored dialogue will aid AIAN stakeholders in identifying the most pressing health disparities in their communities, the most valuable ways of communicating and working together with research partners, and the ways in which AIAN tribes and communities want to be involved in health research.
