CEU Course Description

Across the lifespan, American Indian and Alaska Native people have higher rates of disease, injury, and premature death than other racial and ethnic groups in the United States. Despite these obstacles, American Indians and Alaska Natives live longer than previous generations, face illness and disabilities, and experience violence at significantly higher rates than other racial or ethnic groups in the United States. Pervasive issues impacting their overall health throughout their lives include historical trauma, cultural barriers, geographic isolation, and poverty. As a result, they are at risk for numerous physical and mental health problems, including substance misuse. Furthermore, issues that impact American Indians and Alaska Natives children and adolescents may continue into adulthood if untreated. 

CEU Course Objectives
