NIH Tribal Health Expert Shares Insights in Roswell Park Center for Indigenous Cancer Research Webinar

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Center for Indigenous Cancer Research (CICR) Recently hosted a webinar featuring National Institutes of Health (NIH) Tribal Health Research Office Director David R. Wilson, PhD.

The discussion, “A Holistic Approach to Improving American Indian/Alaska Native Health,” touches on the NIH’s engagement with Native and Indigenous individuals and communities, efforts to support and inform scientists and clinicians working with Indigenous communities, and the Office’s work to draw attention to important considerations regarding research in Indigenous communities.

Dr. Wilson was named the first Director of the Tribal Health Research Office in January 2017. Since then, he has worked with leaders of the 574 federally recognized Tribal Nations to address health concerns and collaborate on the NIH’s research portfolio.

“We welcome Dr. Wilson to the international conversation that is unfolding through our webinar series,” says Rodney Haring, PhD, MSW, Director of the CICR at Roswell Park. “In support of our work to reduce cancer’s impact through culturally informed research, health screenings and interventional efforts, we look forward to hearing in greater detail about the NIH’s work to expand and advance respectful, appropriate outreach to Native and Indigenous communities.”
