NDSU Program Specializes In American Indian Health

NDSU Program Specializes In American Indian Health
FARGO, ND -

A North Dakota State University program is offering an advanced degree for students looking to improve the health of American Indians.

The Fargo college earlier this year instituted a master of public health degree with a curriculum specifically designed to prepare graduates to work with Native American health systems. It is believed to be the only one of its kind in the United States.

Students have been studying health-related issues like substance abuse, diabetes, smoking, suicide, post-traumatic stress disorder, poverty and historical trauma.

Dr. Donald Warne, a Kyle, S.D., native and enrolled member of the Oglala Lakota Tribe, is the program director. He says there's "an incredible lack of understanding" about American Indian health issues and he decided to start a program rather than complain about it.
