The Community Health Form (CHF) is rooted in the development of community-informed programming that supports traditional healing practices while working holistically with western medicine.
The Community Health Forum (CHF) was born in 2019, out of UIC’ s mission to support access to culturally-tailored health and wellness services for self-identified Indigenous peoples in Lenapehoking and the tristate area through advocacy, research, community programming, and direct services.
Through an emphasis on Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR), UIC cultivates Indigenous-informed decolonial data collection. Our decolonial research methodologies are underscored by consultation, continuous consent, co-creation, and data sovereignty.
All research is done with proactive consultation with our community members, who give affirmative consent every step of the research process from data collection through dissemination.
Participants are affirmed sovereignty over their data in that they may withdraw their participation and/or any data related to it from study at any time with no consequence.
UIC is conducting a community health needs assessment to gain a better understanding of the behavioral and mental health services that are available for AI/AN and Indigenous people in the Tri-State area, as well as their priorities for health services.
Participation will take about 10 minutes. The survey is anonymous.
If you have questions about this survey, please contact, Director of Research and Policy Advocacy, Urban Indigenous Collective (UIC) by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
In honor of Giving Tuesday we are calling on community and allies to help support us in giving back to Urban Natives, through our programming and community center, and MMIP Taskforce work.
