Community Engagement, Precision Medicine, and Native Health
The 2017 AAMC Community Engagement Toolkit features presentations, discussion questions, and interviews with 17 urban-dwelling Native Americans that academic health centers can use to engage their communities in dialogue about the perceived risks and benefits of participating in the NIH All of Us Research Program and other research efforts. The All of Us Research Program was designed to deploy genetic, clinical, behavioral, and social data to deliver the right treatment to the right patient at the right time.
We encourage you to share the videos with your colleagues to assist with facilitating the conversation about concrete actions that an individual or an institution can take to engage diverse local communities, including Native populations, in discussions about and participation in research, generally and in genetic research, specifically. These videos do not address concerns from a tribal sovereignty perspective.
