A Message from the Director

Another year gone by, it seems we were just looking forward to 2013 and we are now anticipating 2014.  With the ringing in of a new year, the words of a great tribal leader and good friend ring in my ear…. “What will be your contribution?” What is our contribution to the health and wellness of our people, our contribution to the sustainability of our core values and our contribution to the next generation’s connection to the past?

The Center for Native American Health (CNAH) is in the position to provide technical assistance and support to American Indian students and tribal communities.  CNAH has provided guidance in working with tribes to develop their cancer control plan, community health assessment and strategic plan for work force development.  In addition, CNAH provides support and assistance for students who are our next generation of American Indian health professionals.  The CNAH Indians into Medicine (INMED) program supports the social, cultural and academic development that encourages the success of AI students in higher education.

CNAH is planning engagement opportunities with tribes and schools to contribute to improving the overall health and wellness of communities.  CNAH has many partners and we look forward to strengthening these partnerships over the coming year.   Stay updated for upcoming events on our website.  

Best Wishes for a Healthy & Happy Holiday
