NARCH Student Development Options
Working with students to serve American Indian communities in health.
Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council, in partnership with multiple groups interested in the health of American Indian people, has designed a student development program to support students who are interested in health care research and occupations. Through this program, students are provided with academic support, career guidance, and opportunities for hands-on learning experiences from middle school through their Bachelor’s Degree.
These programs are for students who are American Indian or Alaskan Native (AI/AN) and are interested in pursuing careers in science research and or health care.
