AAIP Liaisons

Call for Nominations

AAIP has many important relationships with several organizations and groups across the U.S. who also work to help promote, advocate, and advance the American Indian/Alaska Native community. These relationships include having AAIP members serve as liaisons to these many organizations and helping to facilitate ways in which AAIP can help partner and support the work of these organizations.

Below are available AAIP liaison positions to several organizations; included is a brief description of each organization and a weblink to the organization. Responsibilities for each liaison include attending required meetings and teleconferences throughout the year and providing a quarterly report to the AAIP Executive Board (either written or in-person) on current activities the organization is working on how AAIP should be involved. Each liaison role is for a two-year term.

AAIP members can either nominate themselves or another AAIP member for any of the organizations below. Please reply to tanderson@aaip.org and submit the following information:

  • Name of individual
  • Name of organization(s) interested in serving as a liaison
  • Brief description of why the individual wants to be a liaison to the organization and why they are best suited for it

 All nominations are due February 4, 2022.

For More Information

On behalf of the ANAMS board, thank you so much for giving your
valuable time this evening and providing valuable feedback and
guidance. As was discussed, we have been wanting to create a
directory of physicians who medical students can connect with.

ANAMS has drafted a letter, attached below, to residents, fellows, and
post-training physicians. Physicians who are interested in providing
mentorship can click on the survey link attached to the letter. It is
our goal to consolidate this information to allow students to reach
out to people connected with a specific specialty/program.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could help distribute this
letter to your membership listings and to folks who you feel would be
motivated to help Native medical students.

Please feel free to reach out Justin Kaye, our Alumni Outreach
Liaison, at jbkaye@email.arizona.edu with any questions. Thank you
