      Join us for a day of learning and engagement as we address Native American healthcare issues and challenges. Native American communities face a complex set of issues and concerns regarding healthcare, resulting in significant disparities compared to the general population. Attend and gain valuable insights and contribute to advancing healthcare for Native American patients in South Dakota. Additionally, network with colleagues and attend the poster session where USD Sanford School of Medicine students will highlight their work. Registration coming soon.
