Cole Allick, PhD, MHA


Research Assistant Professor

Dr. Cole Allick is a Research Assistant Professor in the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine and IREACH. He is a proud citizen of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians. Dr. Allick holds a PhD in Indigenous Health, Master of Health Administration, and Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Public Administration. He is passionate about working with Elders and is focused on Alzheimer’s disease research and associated topics. Dr. Allick is also very interested in Indigenous research methods, which represent the interplay between outreach/engagement and methods. He is hoping to collaborate with colleagues on the Methods Core and continue to build those skillsets as he creates his own projects. Dr. Allick loves being in community whether it is for a research project or just conversing with Elders or other community members. He finds that being in that space nurtures his soul and allows him to make a more positive space for his collaborators and teammates as they conduct their important work at IREACH. Dr. Allick is an avid volleyball player and weightlifter and loves to travel. When he is not doing those things, he is coaching volleyball or spending time with his friends and family. Dr. Allick is so grateful that his work allows him to travel and collaborate with Indigenous and non-Indigenous people alike across the world.
