National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities

Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians in partnership with Tribal Nations Research Group and Tribal Health are making history by conducting the first ever (TMBCI community driven) Community Health Needs Assessment!


Tribal Nations Research Group had a booth at the Mall in Belcourt during the Seven Stone Wellness Fair on May 25th 2016. Seven Stone had their grand opening at the same time and we couldn't be more proud of Jennifer Thomas and Tami Jollie-Trottier! Congratulations and best of luck from TNRG!

This project will provide a systemic examination of health status indicators for a given population that is used to identify key needs, concerns, and assets in the Turtle Mountain Community. The study will examine the health areas of concern and whether or not there needs to be improvement in program outreach from local service programs. The research will furnish baseline data to the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians (TMBCI) and to all service programs in the area to create a plan of action to prioritize TMBCI areas of health concern. The intent of this study is to assist tribal government in making data-driven decisions and to track and use the data to discern areas of concern and improvement over time for service programs.
