Research Engagement at Denver Indian Health and Family Services
Denver Indian Health and Family Services has collaborated, successfully, with partners in health research for many years. Most of the work done has been community-based, socio-behavioral; such as diabetes maintenance research, weight loss research, mental health services utilization, and quality assurance/quality improvement, etc. Through the years, our participation has been based on trust with our research partners; and that has worked well to serve our community, our clinic, and most importantly, our patients.
We welcome thoughtful research partnerships that provide (or expand) healthcare services and improves the health of our community. No patient is ever pressured to participate in any study. Our patients' health and well-being, and respecting traditional Native ways, are always our top priorities.
Due to an increased number of requests for research participation, please read our Research Engagement Guidelines carefully before requesting a research partnership.
