“Working at the Center for Rural Health is very rewarding both professionally and personally. Growing up in a rural, reservation setting I saw the health disparities that exist in tribal communities and in rural areas overall. Being part of the Center for Rural Health offers the opportunity to give back to both tribal and non-tribal rural communities.”
