College Health Corps, American Indian Cancer Foundation
The American Indian Cancer Foundation (AICAF) mission is to eliminate cancer burdens on American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) people through improved access to prevention, early detection, treatment and survivor support. We support transformational community-based interventions that engage AI/AN communities in the discovery of cancer best practices. We believe communities possess the wisdom to discover the solutions to effectively address the challenges but often look for resources and support to do so. We strive to be a partner trusted by tribes and organizations working toward effective and sustainable cancer solutions. AI/AN community needs were identified by AICAF in community conversations, research projects, and clinic system partnerships and lived experiences of staff, families and friends in AI/AN communities nationally. ---This project is part of the College Health Corps (CHC) VISTA Program, operated by Minnesota Campus Compact. The CHC increases low-income individuals’ access to health care, health education, food, and basic needs through capacity building projects, including partnerships between higher education and community based organizations. Professional development focuses on health equity, the social determinants of health, and effective partnership development. --- ***Please also send cover letter and resume to supervisor. Interviews will occur on a rolling basis. Preference given to candidates who apply early.***
