  • Education, Income, and Employment and Prevalence of Chronic Disease Among American Indian/Alaska Native Elders
    Chronic disease studies have omitted analyses of the American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) population, relied on small samples of AI/ANs, or focused on a single disease among AI/ANs. We measured the influence of income, employment status, and education level on the prevalence of chronic disease among 14,632 AI/AN elders. This article has also been included in a special collection for Preventing Chronic Disease: Public Health Research, Practice, and Policy titled, "PCD Collection: Eliminating Health Disparities: A Collection of Papers Dedicated to the Life and Work of Dr. Timothy Cunningham."
