Other Centers

The National Resource Center on Native American Aging (NRCNAA) is one of three centers that exist. The two others, one in Alaska and one in Hawaii, each work specifically with their unique state native populations. The three centers collaborate on the Identifying Our Needs: A Survey of Elders project and other projects jointly and individually.
