University of Iowa to develop treatment for underserved groups
IOWA CITY (AP) — The University of Iowa has been selected to work with medical providers around the country to reform how American Indians and Alaska Natives are treated for addiction.
The school’s Department of Public Health was recently awarded a nearly $3.4 million federal grant to establish the National American Indian and Alaska Native Addiction Technology Transfer Center, the Iowa City Press-Citizen reported.
The five-year grant will help the center develop and replace protocols in substance abuse treatment centers with practices developed for American Indian and Alaska Native populations, said Anne Helene Skinstad, the center’s director and a clinical associate professor of community and behavioral health.
