Hello! I chose to work on AICAF’s Research Team because I believe gathering data in both a community-led and culturally-relevant way is important to improving the health of Native communities. Without data, we would not know the best way to go about making positive change; but historically, research and the gathering of data has been done without thought of who should own it, how it can improve lives, or the people involved. In my role as Research Coordinator, I get to do “researchy” things like thinking about methodology and working in Qualtrics, but I also get to visit community partners, provide technical assistance, and watch as our partners lead successful data collection in their own communities.
