Dear Tribal Nations and Friends of the Association of American Indian Physicians:

The Association of American Indian Physicians (AAIP) would like to draw your attention to a healthcare workforce crisis in our country directly affecting the access to and quality of healthcare for American Indians and Alaska Natives across the United States.

According to a recent report released by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), American Indian physicians make up less than 1 percent of the practicing physicians in the country.

Unfortunately, the number of American Indians getting into and graduating from medical school is also stagnant.

AAIP needs your help.

Your role as a sponsor can help lead to a healthier future for Native Americans in this country.

AAIP invites you to partner with them in reaching their mission, “To pursue excellence in Native American healthcare by promoting education in the medical disciplines, honoring traditional healing principles and restoring the balance of mind, body and spirit.”

AAIP’s 48th Annual Meeting and Health Conference will be presented August 8 - 10, 2019 in Chicago, IL.The host hotel property is the Crown Plaza West Loop.

A few of 2019’s conference topics may include diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer disparities, child and maternal health issues, and how these topics relate to Native American health. For more information about this American Indian health workforce crisis in the United States, please download the recently published (October 2018) joint publication entitled "Reshaping the Journey, American Indians and Alaska Natives in Medicine", co-authored by AAIP and AAMC, at the following website: www.aamc.org/reshapingthejourney.

AAIP History: In 1971, AAIP was established as an educational, scientific, membership, charitable and nonprofit corporation. The values that began the program are adhered to today. AAIP currently has over 450 members and provides educational programs, health initiatives, capacity building assistance, and many other services for American Indian and Alaska Native communities. From high school to post-secondary education AAIP is identifying, recruiting, mentoring, and preparing American Indian and Alaskan Natives for success in a medical discipline.

Students and the 48th Annual Meeting: Undergraduate and graduate students attend a portion of the Annual Meeting called the Pre-Admission Workshop (PAW). PAW brings together AAIP sponsors, physician members, public healthcare professionals, and American Native/Alaskan Native college students. The goal of PAW is to provide students with information and skills to enroll successfully in pre-medical or medical school. Please consider sponsoring a college student’s travel ($2,500) to attend the PAW.

What is your role in this year’s 48th Annual Meeting? If you have supported AAIP in the past, we thank you and hope that you will consider increasing this year’s level of support. AAIP offers valuable services for the medical community and needs your sponsorship. Your support places your business in front of the Native American and Alaskan Native medical community.
