Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The authors met with intertribal groups to learn about cultural issues related to cancer genetics. The information gathered from these meetings identified issues that are incorporated into the Genetic Education for Native Americans (GENA) interactive, innovative and multidisciplinary curriculum.

METHODS:

To address the diverse cultural and scientific issues, the faculty presented customized workshops during conferences for Native American college students.

RESULTS:

The authors discuss current issues and techniques in cancer education in Native American communities.

CONCLUSIONS:

Better understanding of tribal culture among researchers will enhance Native Americans' collaboration in research.
