The Native American population in the United States suffers the largest behavioural health disparities of any ethnic group. Adolescents, in particular, are disproportionately affected by substance use, suicide and sexually transmitted infections. A devastating historical legacy has created a context of poverty, unemployment and a service-delivery system that is under-equipped to meet behavioural prevention and treatment needs. Lauren Tingey’s research focuses on a number of studies conducted in partnership with a rural, reservation-based American Indian community. She studies interventions targeting the behavioural health disparities outlined above, with a special focus on the evaluation of a culturally adapted evidence-based intervention for HIV risk reduction.
