This round table session provides APHA members the opportunity to sit with the presenters and discuss a variety of topics specific to Indigenous populations. Participants in this session will discuss culturally-based research and evaluation methods, efforts to adapt national public health intervention and data collection strategies to Indigenous communities, and approaches used to identify and address health disparities faced by Indigenous peoples.

By the end of the session, participants will have a solid understanding of the importance of weaving cultural traditions with quality data and research methods for improved health in American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities.
