The Native Center for Alcohol Research Education (NCARE) and Native-Controlling Hypertension and Risk Through Technology (NCHART) Webinar Series presents:

Considerations for Culturally Centering Evidence-Based Treatments among American Indian and Alaska Native Communities, with Dr. Kait Hirchak (Eastern Shoshone), Assistant Research Professor in WSU’s Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine.

Dr. Hirchak will highlight two case studies to describe re-centering evidence-based treatments for substance use disorder in partnership with American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. These studies are part of a growing body of research on cultural adaptations of substance use disorder interventions among racially and ethnically diverse adults. Dr. Hirchak will also discuss the importance of community-based participatory research and additional efforts to improve treatment outcomes for AI/AN adults participating in culturally adapted interventions.
