Partnerships for Native Health
Partnerships for Native Health (P4NH) is a research program housed within the Institute for Research and Education to Advance Community Health (IREACH) at Washington State University. It is one of the largest research organizations in the nation devoted to the health and health care of American Indians and Alaska Natives. Formalized in 2009, the program has developed a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to achieve our mission of improving the health and well-being of American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders of all ages.
The Native Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center for Minority Aging Research (NAD RCMAR) aims to better understand, intervene on, and mitigate the Alzheimer’s disease health disparities experienced by American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders by funding pilot studies through its career development program for early- to mid-career investigators.
Native-Controlling Hypertension And Risks through Technology (Native-CHART) aims to improve control of blood pressure and other risk factors for cardiovascular disease in American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders with diagnosed hypertension.
The Native Center for Alcohol Research and Education (NCARE) seeks to mitigate and ultimately eliminate the alcohol-related health disparities experienced by American Indians and Alaska Natives by implementing sustainable, culturally, and locally adapted interventions.
