Partnerships for Native Health has produced several series of educational posters in collaboration with Native artists, who are compensated for permission to use their work.
This project features art on brochures, posters, and printed materials to raise cancer awareness and increase cancer prevention activities. Visual art is a positive and powerful way to deliver cancer education in Native communities. It connects researchers and the community, making people more receptive to information about cancer. By sharing their creativity and stories, these Native artists and Native People for Cancer Control are helping fight cancer in American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
