Indigenous Trauma and Resilience Research Center to hold first annual symposium April 22
The Indigenous Trauma & Resilience Research Center (ITRRC) will hold its first annual symposium on April 22, 2022, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (CST).
American Indians in North Dakota and throughout the region suffer from significant health disparities, relative to the non-Native population, much of which is related to historical trauma, adverse childhood experiences, forced boarding school participation, social marginalization, and toxic stress. The goal of the ITRRC is to address the impact of historical and unresolved trauma on health inequities within the American Indian and Alaska Native population.
The purpose of this symposium is to bring together nationally recognized experts in Indigenous trauma and resilience and highlight the research being accomplished at UND. Featured speakers include:
- David R. Wilson, PhD, Navajo, Director of the National Institutes of Health’s Tribal Health Research Office
- Donald Warne, MD, MPH, Oglala Lakota, Program Director for the Indigenous Trauma & Resilience Research Center
- Alison Kelliher, MD, Koyukon Athabascan, Director of the American Indian Collaborative Research Network (AICoRN)
- Ursula Running Bear, PhD, MS, Sicangu Lakota, Assistant Professor in the Public Health Program at UND SMHS
- Andrew Williams, PhD, MPH, Assistant Professor in the Public Health Program at UND SMHS
- Nicole Redvers, ND, MPH, Deninu K’ue, Assistant Professor in the Departments of Indigenous Health and Family & Community Medicine at UND SMHS
