Growing Relationships: Innovative Public Health Solutions to Reach the Urban Indian Community
The Minneapolis Health Department partnered with the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community, a Federally Recognized Indian Nation, to reach the inner city Native American population. Using an updated twist on ancient indigenous knowledge the partnership developed a way to address pressing public health issues in the native community related to poor nutrition. You will be able to build creative partnerships to take a different approach in serving hard-to-reach communities by leveraging their unique culture.
