Focusing on health problems facing American Indians

University at Buffalo

Native Americans have the worst health statistics in the country, according to a researcher at the University at Buffalo, yet few people are aware of the epidemic.

Margaret Moss, assistant dean for diversity and inclusion at the University at Buffalo School of Nursing, will give a presentation on the issue at 5 p.m. Wednesday at Hyatt Place at 5020 Main Street in Amherst.  Her lecture is titled: "Time to Take Notice: From Hidden to Healthy, Reclaiming Equity for American Indians."

"I want to challenge people to think, if they do know these statistics, what can we do about it? And if they don't know, to question why they were unaware."

Moss spoke with WBFO's Brian Meyer about the health issues facing American Indians.
