What's Happening at Red Star!
ASSESSING THE FEASIBILITY OF A TRIBAL PUBLIC HEALTH INSTITUTE
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation contracted Red Star Innovations to conduct a feasibility study to understand the role a tribal public health institute could play in complementing existing tribal services and resources. As part of this project Red Star Innovations will establish a tribal public health advisory board to provide key recommendations and evaluate the feasibility and desirability of creating a tribal public health institute, and convene tribal roundtables throughout the country to seek ongoing input into the project.Project Update
