The Center has offices in tribal communities across Arizona and New Mexico as well as a Great Lakes Hub serving tribes in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and along the shared border with Canada. With nearly 40 years of collaboration with Native American tribes, the Center supports public health interventions in more than 140 tribal communities in over 20 states. These partnerships have achieved landmark public health breakthroughs credited with saving millions of children’s lives worldwide. The VISTA will work with a team of interdisciplinary social scientists (e.g., sociologists, psychologists, public health scholars), community members, and undergraduate RAs on exciting, private and federally funded opioid public health program evaluation initiatives in collaboration with American Indian tribal communities. Their duties will include participating in public health research and coordinating communications about public health initiatives, to provide the care that will lift native families out of poverty.
