Housed at the NPAIHB Tribal EpiCenter, the NW NARCH program is part of a national research and science education program that includes input from tribes, tribal organizations, and universities.
Our main goal is to improve tribal health by increasing the numbers of tribal people who are engaged in biomedical and social science research and who can bring the benefits of academic research into their communities.
The NARCH email listserv is one of the main forms of communication we use. Please leave your name and email to stay connected to our program, as well as our most recent news and events.
