NWIC establishes Center for Health to address Tribal communities’ health disparities

In response to the persistent disparities in Tribal representation in health research, education and professionals, the Northwest Indian College has established the Northwest Indian College Center for Health.

The Northwest Indian College Center for Health (NWICCH) will pursue multi-faceted educational responses to the long-standing health disparities in our Tribal communities. This response will include research supporting health education and services, development of culturally relevant research, curriculum and publications, and continued Tribal “ownership” of Native research and data.

The foundation of NWICCH’s projects will rest in Community-Based Participatory Research, ensuring all research is rooted in the needs of the communities, engaging communities and serving communities. The research projects will be conducted with consensus and collaboration of Tribal communities, further supported through additional partnerships with the Northwest Washington Indian Health Board and its member tribes.
