The National Prevention Science Coalition to Improve Lives is soliciting factsheets addressing the challenges of American Indians.  Somewhat similar to our just released structural racism booklet , the purpose of each factsheet is to describe the unique challenges of these tribal communities, the prevailing needs, and potential policy solutions.  Dimensions of the issues to be covered might include discrimination and prejudicial practices, acculturation/assimilation challenges, risk for mental health problems and substance use disorders, quality of education, access to health care and other services, environmental concerns, encroachment, and so forth. Solutions might include federal, state and local policies, but also community coalition building efforts supportable at various levels. Please contact me if you are interested in contributing: dfishbein@psu.edu.
