    About this Event

    You are invited to participate in the seventh biannual NNHRRB conference. The Navajo Nation Human Research Review Board (NNHRRB) was established in March 1996 to ensure that research within the boundaries of the Navajo Nation is conducted in an ethical and culturally sensitive manner. The NNHRRB provides oversight and guidance for research that is intended to benefit the Diné people. There has been much outstanding research completed that needs to be shared with the Diné people, the Navajo Nation Government, and Navajo Nation service providers. As such, we are pleased to announce the NNHRRB 2019 conference as a venue to share the results of completed research studies and to highlight the latest research being conducted on the Navajo Nation.

    Breakfast and Lunch will be provided for all attendees.

    Presenters will also need to register and pay the fees, which include continental breakfast/lunch and conference materials.

    Limited conference sponsorship is available for students and community members, if interested please contact Esther Cadman via email at Please include "Sponsorship Request" in the subject line. Thank you.

    NNHRRB Conference Goals:

    1. Disseminate research findings and recommendations to the Dine people, communities, Tribal leaders, Tribal employees, and State and Federal employees serving the Navajo public.

    2. Enable implementation of evidence based, culturally tailored health promotion, disease prevention, quality health care and education services on the Navajo Nation by providing information that will assist service providers 1) to plan, develop and fund programs on the Navajo Nation; and 2) to develop, revise and refine Dine health and education policies within the Navajo Nation.

    3. Facilitate a venue for research discussion and collaboration among community members, Tribal leaders, health care providers, educators, students and research scholars including the NNHRRB process for new research application and reporting processes
