Native Americans into Medicine (NAM) is a 6-week summer enrichment program at the University of Minnesota Medical School Duluth, Center of American Indian and Minority Health (CAIMH) for students interested in pursuing health careers. The program in 2020 will use data compiled from the Strong Heart Study, a large epidemiologic study of cardiovascular disease in American Indians.

The program will take place June 22 - July 31, 2020. The NAM program is a 2 summer project, so students applying should be prepared to attend NAM in both 2020, and Summer of 2021.
