Indigenous Health Flourishes Where Ancestral Love Is Nourished

March 1, 2022

Presented by Andrea Garcia, MD, MS

This session is meant to orient clinicians to basic foundational knowledge about the American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) population, including but not limited to demographics, diversity within AIAN people, and how AIAN identity may affect access to health care. Participants will additionally understand how structural determinants of health (e.g. Federal Indian policymaking) has contributed to current health outcomes, socioeconomic indicators, and intergenerational trauma. Lastly, participants will gain an appreciation of how culturally based practices and evidenced based practices can be synergistic, rather than mutually exclusive.
