Hot Topics in Practice – Finding Strength in Small Numbers: Epidemiology in Urban Indian Communities
In the May session of Hot Topics in Practice, Adrian Dominguez, MS, Scientific Director for the Urban Indian Health Institute in Seattle, explores how public health professionals can approach working with small numbers and small data sets to better understand the health of indigenous populations.
This one-hour webinar will review how racial misclassification and limited analysis have excluded American Indian and Alaska Native populations from health assessments and community conversations, and what can be done to be more inclusive. Dominguez will share examples from his organization’s work to document the health of urban Indian communities and offer their strategies for correcting racial misclassification and small numbers suppression.
Register today to learn about correcting individual, institutional, and cultural biases to better support health.
