Who We Are

NativeC-Cancer I-Information R-Resource C-Center and L-Learning E-Exchange

The Native CIRCLE is a resource center providing cancer and non-cancer related materials to healthcare professionals and lay people involved in the education, care and treatment of American Indians and Alaska Natives.

Culturally appropriate educational materials are essential tools for community outreach. The American Indian/Alaska Native Cancer Information Resource Center and Learning Exchange ("Native CIRCLE"), established in 1999, within the Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center provides, stimulates, develops, maintains, and disseminates culturally appropriate cancer, diabetes and health and wellness materials for AI/AN educators, providers, and students. Movies and print materials sent to CIRCLE from around Indian country are reviewed by the medical director (Dr. Judith Salmon Kaur) for medical accuracy, modified if necessary, and made available for distribution to health care and community settings.

The Native CIRCLE DOES NOT PRODUCE their own materials. The materials listed have been gathered from outside agencies, hospitals, clinics, etc., from within the United States and Canada.
