  • American Indian/Alaska Native Health Disparities Program (AI/AN) The overall intent of the AI/AN program is to strengthen the capacity of Tribal Epidemiology Centers (TECs) and Urban Indian Health Programs (UIHPs) to: collect and manage data more effectively; better understand and develop the link between public health problems and behavior, socioeconomic conditions, and geography; and create a pipeline program for students to increase racial and ethnic diversity in the public health and biomedical sciences professions.
  • Peer-to-Peer Outreach Model to Curb HIV/AIDS Transmission Among High Risk Minority Youth and Adolescents (CHAT) The CHAT program seeks to improve the HIV/AIDS health outcomes of high risk minority youth (13-19 years old) by supporting community-based efforts to increase HIV/AIDS prevention/education efforts, testing, counseling and referrals.
  • Youth Empowerment Program (YEP): The YEP seeks to address unhealthy behaviors in at-risk minority youth, 10-18 years of age, and provide them with opportunities to learn skills and gain experiences that contribute to more positive lifestyles and enhance their capacity to make healthier life choices.
