Tuesday, November 3, 2015: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

This session will explore Indigenous perspectives in substance abuse prevention programming and potential policy implications for future prevention programming, the process of integrating systems of care for urban American Indian/Alaska Natives via building infrastructure to allow for culturally competent care, assess adverse childhood experiences and their contribution to poor health out comes across the lifespan in one Tribal geographic area, and examine suicide ideation risk factors and implications for future prevention strategies.
Session Objectives: 1. Discuss innovative research methods that address health disparities faced by Native communities.
