Health Research = Bridging Tradition and Science
We welcome thoughtful research partnerships to improve the health of our community. 
We only associate with "high medical priority" projects that provide (or improve) healthcare services. 
No patient is ever pressured to participate in any study. 
Our patients' health and well-being, and respecting traditional Native ways, are always our top priorities.
