Medicine wheel

"The Center of American Indian and Minority Health was founded on the principle of self-determination. It arose from suggestions of the Native people of Minnesota.  We have maintained Native leadership by hiring Native American directors and by establishing an American Indian Advisory Board. Not only have we made a tremendous impact in developing Native American physicians, pharmacists, and health professionals, we've also provided Minnesota with American Indian leadership in many other health fields, such as the Native youth alliance and the American Indian Cancer Foundation."
