Indigenous communities are living through a healthcare crisis – one fueled by generational trauma, high rates of chronic disease, and underfunding. Tribal Health revitalizes Native American health by connecting tribal and federal facilities to culturally informed medicine, advanced healthcare models, and onsite clinical education.
Stronger Tribal Facilities. Healthier Indigenous Communities.
Tribal Health assists in solving systemic healthcare barriers in Native American communities. In addition to training IHS personnel in new clinical skills, we develop process improvements that help hospitals get accredited and win the community’s trust. We also hire from within the communities we serve – increasing Indigenous representation in healthcare and improving the local economy.
