3094.0 Indigenous examples of Community Based Participatory Research and community led projects

Monday, November 8, 2010: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
This round table session provides APHA members the opportunity to sit with the presenter and discuss a variety of topics specific to Indigenous communities. We will discuss peer-to-peer assessments, culturally-tailored interventions, the importance of CBPR, recruitment and retention strategies to increase the number of Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders clinicians, the loss of Indigenous languages as a health issue, decreasing health disparities, achieving equity in health care, concept mapping and three decades of university center-tribal relationships. We will identify lessons learned, health care, research, advocacy and the development of best practices for decreasing health disparities by creating partnerships; using culturally tailored health curriculum and health education materials; incorporating youth into health programs and research; supported through family and community interaction. The research topics are related to physical, oral, and mental health, child development, and specific disease prevention/reduction projects involving native peoples.
Session Objectives: Discuss innovative research methods and practices to address racial and ethnic health disparities. Define characteristics, approaches and treatments in Native communities. Explain Community-Based Projects: Integrating traditional knowledge to address contemporary issues in health and education.
