November is National American Indian Heritage month, and A.T. Still University (ATSU) students, faculty, and staff are celebrating throughout the month with events, giveaways, educational sessions, and more.

On Tuesday, Nov. 15, Dougherty Tsalabutie, MS, director of the National Center for American Indian Health Professions (NCAIHP), organized a traditional Pueblo giveaway on the Mesa, Arizona, campus. Students were given candy, snacks, fruit, and vegetables, as well as essential items such as toilet paper and hand sanitizer.

The NCAIHP was established to provide healthcare career advising, assistance with admissions applications, financial advising, and academic support to prospective American Indian and Alaska Native ATSU students. The NCAIHP also aims to spark an interest in healthcare careers, and offers a mentor program connecting high school and college students to ATSU alumni.

National American Indian Heritage month celebrates the cultures, traditions, and achievements of indigenous peoples in the United States.

On Tuesday, Nov. 22, join the NCAIHP from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. for Three Sisters Stew in Bucky’s Cafe on the Mesa, Arizona, campus.
