American Indian Public Health: An Emerging Discipline
Conference: Pathways Into Health
Rapid City, SD
This conference is intended to coordinate opportunities in health professions education for American Indians. I was able to introduce the concept of AI Public Health as an academic discipline and the curriculum that includes AI Health Policy, AI Health Disparities, Cultural Competence in Indian Health, Research in Tribal Communities, Case Studies in Indian Health, among others. The concept was well-received and we have several potential students who are interested in joining our program at NDSU!
