Reaching Native communities in COVID-19 research

 

October 21, 2021



David Wilson, Navajo, was named the first director of the Tribal Health Research Office at the National Institute of Health in 2017. He leads health research about Native people, and has a current research budget of $130 million. Wilson has collaborated with top experts, including Dr. Anthony Fauci, to ensure Native communities are including in pandemic research. He tells us more about COVID-19, vaccines and other areas of data collection.

The National Indian Education Association held its in-person convention last weekend. About 800 people gathered in Omaha, Nebraska. Robin Butterfield, a longtime educator and ombudsman of the organization, joins us. ICT's Shirley Sneve covered the event and tells us more too.
