The annual American Indian Health Research Conference is
a daylong event featuring national speakers, researchers,
students, and community members. The conference is an
opportunity for students to present their research and to
learn about other research happening within American
Indian communities. It also serves as an opportunity for
participants to network and partner with communities,
tribal colleges, and researchers on other projects.
The focus of the 2019 conference was “Cancer Prevention & Health Promotion Research in Indian
Country.” It was held October 19, 2019 at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health
Sciences in Grand Forks, North Dakota. The conference was attended by more than 50 participants. Plans are
underway for the 2020 conference.
