The Center for American Indian Community Health strives to engage American Indian individuals and communities in everything we do to promote health and well-being. We provide information for organizations, programs, and individuals who wish to participate in or learn more about our research studies, service projects, and volunteer opportunities.
Get involved with CAICH: We welcome your participation in CAICH research, services, or events!
Know Your Research Rights: We believe that you need to know your rights when you participate in research. KUMC has many things in place to help protect you. To learn more about what KUMC does to protect you, please visit the Human Research Protection Program website. We have things available at our Center to protect you as well! Our Cultural Review and Monitoring Committee monitors all research at KUMC that is done with American Indian communities. This group of American Indian Center members looks at all research protocols before they can start to make sure appropriate tribal approvals have been obtained and to make sure everything is being done in a culturally appropriate manner.

We have one-page information sheets about many of our research projects available for download here. If you want to learn more about results from a particular project and there is no information sheet available, please contact Jason Hale, MA, CAICH Assistant Director for Community Engagement & Education, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 913-945-7822.
