About this episode

American Indian and Alaska Natives (AIAN) face substantial health inequalities, yet ethical research addressing their health concerns is still extremely limited. Dr Cynthia Pearson, Associate Professor at the University of Washington and Director of Research at the Indigenous Wellness Research Institute, along with her colleagues Dr Myra Parker, Dr Chuan Zhou, Ms Catlin Donald and Dr Celia Fisher, has developed a new training curriculum for the conduct of ethical research with American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
