"American Indian Health Equity: Trauma, Resilience & Recovery"
The American Indian (AI) population suffers from significant health disparities, and the outcomes in the Northern Plains, including North Dakota, are among the worst in the nation. Numerous factors contribute to health inequities, including poverty, inadequate educational systems, food deserts, marginalization, and other social determinants of health. An additional consideration that contributes to poor health outcomes for the AI population is unresolved trauma in the forms of historical trauma, Boarding School participation, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs),
and discrimination. In this lecture we will focus on Dr. Warne’s research into historical trauma and ACEs in North Dakota and South Dakota.
We will discuss the concepts of resilience and recovery to prevent future trauma and to mitigate the impact and outcomes of trauma, including poor mental health, suicide, addiction, and chronic disease. The Recovery Reinvented program in North Dakota, led by First Lady Kathryn Helgaas Burgum, will be highlighted. Recovery Reinvented focuses on proven approaches to address addiction and recovery without shame or stigma. We will also put forth a research and educational agenda for UND and partner institutions to focus on recovery and to eliminate health inequities for future generations.
