Professor Kimberly Huyser (Diné) – First Monday Speaker for block 3 (October 21)

“Sketching a Portrait of Health: Identifying Social Factors that Influence the Well-being of American Indian and Alaska Native Peoples”

American Indian and Alaska Native peoples (AIANs) are the original peoples to this continent and are the only racial/ethnic minority explicitly mentioned in the U.S. Constitution. As a result of historic and current marginalization, AIANs have fewer socioeconomic resources than other groups. Fundamental cause theory argues individuals and communities with the fewest resources almost inevitably experience the most adverse health effects. This leads to the expectation that AIANs will have poor health outcomes; however, this is not always the case. The presentation will identify the social resources that AIANs access to mitigate health outcomes.
