The National Institutes of Health's All of Us Research Program recently announced three awards totaling $1.5 million to institutions partnering with American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) and Indigenous communities to advance health equity and precision medicine.
The awards have been made to the University of Arizona, the Marshfield Clinic Research Institute in Wisconsin, and the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES).
"These collaborations are part of a long journey to co-create an environment of trust and to advance with Tribal communities on our shared goals of delivering a healthier future," says Karriem Watson, All of Us chief engagement officer.
The awards will support outreach and engagement with AI/AN and Indigenous communities, strengthen the research infrastructure supporting AI/AN researchers, and broaden the base of researchers conducting cultural and ethical research with Tribal communities.
More than 700,000 participants have completed primary consent, and 80% of those identify with communities underrepresented in health research.
