Navigating Culture and Care Series

The Collaborative Research Center for American Indian Health (CRCAIH—pronounced “KIRK-uh”) is offering a series on Navigating Culture Care, presented by Jennifer Prasek.

The Collaborative Research Center for American Indian Health (CRCAIH) brings together tribal communities and health researchers within SD, ND, and MN. Our goal is to build tribal research infrastructure and transdisciplinary research teams to improve American Indian health through examination of social and environmental influences on health.

CRCAIH helps tribal communities and health professionals plan and perform research addressing the health issues of American Indians (AI) in South Dakota, North Dakota, and Minnesota.
