"The Collaborative Research Center for American Indian Health (CRCAIH-pronounced "KIRK-uh") was formed in September 2012 with a grant from the National Institute for Minority Health and Health Disparities.
MISSION: The Collaborative Research Center for American Indian Health (CRCAIH) is designed to create a platform to bring together Tribal communities and health researchers from multiple disciplines, to work together in conducting cutting-edge transdisciplinary research that addresses significant health disparities experienced by American Indians in South Dakota, North Dakota, and Minnesota.
Our goal is to build tribal research infrastructure and promote transdisciplinary research teams to improve American Indian health through examination of social and environmental influences on health."
