The Center for American Indian Community Health partners and collaborates with American Indian Nations and communities in the Heartland and around the country. We have formed relationships with numerous organizations (local, state, federal, tribal) in order to conduct community based participatory research to address health disparities in Native populations. We provide services to these communities to assist local and regional efforts at improving Native health.
We are among the largest American Indian research teams in the country, where almost 80 percent of our team members are American Indian. Our team represents many different Nations across the United States in a variety of public health, social work, and environmental science disciplines. We are dedicated to improving Native health through research and community engagement.
We have three community advisory boards comprised of American Indians from the communities of Lawrence, Wichita, and Topeka, Kansas, the four tribes in Kansas, Haskell Indian Nations University, and the Kansas City metropolitan area, who guide all of our activities.
