The Office of Community Outreach & Engagement: "Better Outcomes for Everyone"

Nov 2, 2021

Relationality is a core value among American Indian and Alaska Native (Indigenous) communities and is embedded in who they are as Indigenous people. Indigenous relationality in research involves developing and maintaining relations with the people, community, and the land. In this first part of Episode 2, Dr. Marc Emerson (Diné), assistant professor in the department of Epidemiology at the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and Dornell Pete (Diné), doctoral student in epidemiology at the University of Washington and an epidemiologist at Urban Indian Health Institute, leads us in a compelling discussion about how learning and practicing relationality benefits their research and work as Indigenous researchers.
