Daanis Chosa, AS

Boozhoo. Daanis is from the Keweenaw Bay Chippewa Indian Community in Michigan and is a member of the Bois Forte Band of Chippewa in Minnesota. Daanis holds an AS in Community Development and is currently seeking my BS in Sociology – Policy Analysis at the University of Minnesota. She chose to work at the American Indian Cancer Foundation because she is an advocate for health equity in Native communities and reclaiming our identity and culture as Indigenous people. Daanis’s family have been impacted by cancer and she has lost loved ones to this disease. It is her goal to help change this story by promoting healthy living and prevention strategies in American Indian and Alaska Native communities. In her role as the Prevention and Policy Coordinator, Daanis supports strategies that improve health outcomes in Native communities with a focus on policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) change.
