Healthy Native Communities FellowshipThe Fellowship program is designed to build the capacity for effective and health promotion practices at the local level by increasing the knowledge, skills, and capacities of Tribal, IHS, and Urban Indian health workers and leaders. The program is an intense year-long opportunity that develops leaders who are catalysts for positive change and who have the skills needed to work with tribal communities to advance a new vision of population health.
To support community capacity, the Indian Health Service has continued to fund the Health Natives Communities Fellowship Program from 2005 through the present (2012). Since 2005, the Indian Health Service, through the HNCF, has united local Teams and over 280 Fellows across the nation.
