Diné College has developed a model program for training students in public health prevention research. Diné College believes that Native American students are more likely to develop an interest in prevention research if those interests are nurtured in a culturally supportive atmosphere.
The intent of the research training program is twofold:
- To provide health-related research training and research experiences to Native American students, and
- To provide students with a firm grasp of the health and living concepts embedded in traditional Native American life, how they relate to those taught in western academia
