A National Study of Community – Academic Partnerships
In an effort to improve the health of American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) tribal communities, this project seeks to understand the range of ways that communities are engaged as partners in their own health research and intervention projects. By also including other communities of color and communities that face health disparities in the study design, this work has the possibility of extending beneficial findings within the AI/AN communities to a broader audience.
