The overall mission of NARTC is to conduct health related research and training projects that will help improve the quality of life for Native Americans. 

The Native American Research and Training Center was established in 1983 by The University of Arizona Board of Regents to serve as a resource in health related research and training for Native American communities nation-wide. The Center is housed in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the College of Medicine - Tucson at the University of Arizona.

Because of our commitment to the realization of self-determination, one of the primary objectives of the Center is to promote active participation and partnership with Native American communities in all NARTC research and training programs.
