UW NACHP Gets $1 Million Grant Renewal

NACHP graduation May 2019

Congratulations to our colleagues with the UW Native American Center for Health Professions (NACHP) on the renewal of their Indians into Medicine (INMED) grant!

NACHP has received a nearly $1 million, five-year grant from the Indian Health Service of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to continue their ongoing efforts to recruit American Indian and Alaska Native students into the field of medicine.

The NACHP team remains focused on providing health career exposure to pre-college and college students, increasing the number of qualified applicants for medical and health professional programs, augmenting culturally responsive programming through community-based learning opportunities and expanding American Indian-specific health-focused training to promote service to American Indian and Alaska Native people and communities.  NACHP will continue to partner with five Wisconsin tribal communities: Ho-Chunk Nation, Lac du Flambeau Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin, Oneida Nation and the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohican.

ICTR and CCHE are so excited to extend our workforce development and community-academic partnership efforts! Congratulations to the team on this well-deserved recognition of your success and future potential!
