One way we can decrease health disparities is to recognize cultural strengths of Native peoples and to acknowledge and honor the resiliency of Native families with disabilities. Then we can build upon these strengths and determine how best to interact and meet the needs of these families, through the development or modification of current services. I hope to dedicate my career to reducing these health disparities, particularly those concerning disabilities.
