The Native Health Initiative (NHI) was created in 2005 as a partnership between health profession students and Indigenous communities to address health inequities, using the framework of health equity and loving service to guide our work. The partnership began in North Carolina, now primarily in New Mexico.
Each year NHI offers a variety of scholarships and grants to support indigenous men and women.
“The Education is Ceremony Scholarship assisted me in my education this past spring 2020 term at the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health by giving me the opportunity to wrap up my graduate studies and successfully completing my field experience with tribal elder advisors, tribal project partners, and indigenous scholars…. Thank you to the NHI family for the wonderful opportunity that allowed me to begin the foundation of this project that will be
available for tribal communities in the future.”

This will be a chance to connect NHIers who can meet each other's needs, as well as a chance for NHI to offer monetary support and connect families to services. Using the currency of love, those making requests will earn the support by offering their loving service back to the NHI community.
