Honoring Native American cultures in integrated health
Because of historical oppression and systemic marginalization, Native American and indigenous communities across the country face increased barriers to accessing equitable health care services and resources. This has led to disproportionately higher rates of untreated mental health, substance use and general health conditions.
Integrated and equitable care includes culturally responsive care. Native American and indigenous healers and practitioners have provided culturally responsive care for generations and have much insight to share with those in integrated health care roles.
To honor Native American Heritage month, join the Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions on Thursday, November 16, 1-2 p.m. ET, for a conversation with health equity experts and native scholars and clinicians who will explore strategies for providing culturally responsive integrated care that contributes positively to health outcomes of Native American and indigenous communities.
