Partnerships for Native Health Washington State University

New Project at P4NH

Partnerships for Native Health is excited to kick off the new year by implementing a new alcohol treatment project. We are partnering with three communities across the West on one of the largest substance abuse intervention studies ever conducted with Native people. Our study sample consists of 400 American Indian and Alaska Native adults. Our goal is to determine whether a culturally tailored version of a treatment called motivational incentives (where people receive rewards for not using alcohol) can reduce alcohol abuse and lead to other important outcomes.

Conference Update

We are happy to announce that we are hosting a small conference for Native teens this February 15th (Seattle Public Schools Winter Break).  This will also be our final comic book site and we are hoping to have around 20 teens.
