The Northwest Native American Center of Excellence (NNACoE) aims to amplify Indigenous voice in the health workforce through Native-led and Native-centered initiatives at key moments along the path to becoming a healthcare professional. Native Americans live sicker and die younger than any other group of people in America, and are disproportionately underrepresented in the health professions. We believe in a new generation of Native American health leaders who hold the potential and the solutions to improve health care for all. Together, we will usher in a new dawn.
