E3.20 Public Health Outreach VISTA
The Center for American Indian Health works in partnership with tribal communities to design public health programs that raise the health status, self-sufficiency, and health leadership of Native people to the highest possible level. This VISTA position will be with the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) Center for American Indian Health, Great Lakes Hub, in Duluth, MN. Founded in 1991 and based in the Department of International Health of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Center for American Indian Health supports public health interventions designed for and by Native peoples. 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, federally funded health equity research initiatives in collaboration with American Indian and First Nations communities. Our group is committed to community-based participatory research (CBPR) through authentic teamwork. Respect and reliability are core values of this research team. VISTA member will be part of the Ecolibrium3 AmeriCorps VISTA cohort serving in northeastern Minnesota. Although each member is serving in a unique position, all cohort members will participate in VISTA specific activities such as regular cohort meetings, collaborative projects, and trainings. Additionally, cohort members will jointly complete one community service project of their cooperative design.
