The Native American Research Outreach (NARO) aims to use Mayo Clinic’s research and clinical experience to address the Upper Midwestern region’s tribal and urban Indian health priorities to improve health and well-being. To achieve this, NARO builds collaborative, mutually beneficial research and education relationships among tribal and urban Indian health leaders, Native research organizations, and Mayo Clinic investigators and educators.
NARO seeks nonbinding, nonexclusive partnerships between all of the region’s Native communities and the Mayo Clinic Office Health Disparities Research (OHDR). The OHDR through NARO has signed memoranda of understanding (MOUs) with multiple tribes, Native health organizations and Native research entities.
Projects Facilitated by NARO
