Welcome to the Center for Alaska Native Health Research. We embrace a collaborative research model while working with Alaska Native communities, organizations and individuals. At every stage of CANHR research, faculty and staff work with tribal groups and health care agencies to frame research questions, develop methodologies and procedures, and to interpret and apply data to prevention and treatment.


CANHR is supported by the UAF Institute of Arctic Biology and the UAF College of Rural and Community Development.  Please click on the logos to learn more about these key partners.
