Each quarter, we release a Research Update to keep our partners informed of our work and the latest trends in research.
In this issue, we review our newest publications, including a one-pager on how tribal communities can respond to the growing opioid epidemic. We also highlight the latest research on food security, college retention, infant breastfeeding, etc. among tribal peoples and communities.

Time to enact Tribal Research Laws & Protocols!
The Policy Research advises tribes to review their current research laws, or consider the development of new ones, in light of recent revisions to two major federal research policies, the Common Rule and NIH single IRB policy. This is an opportunity to advance sovereignty over research on tribal lands and with tribal citizens.
We developed a resource to clarify what these research policy revisions mean for your community:
