Crow Men's Health

The Crow Men's Health Project began in 2007 as a partnership between Montana State University faculty and Crow men to work collaboratively to identify and address men’s health issues. Differing from other forms of research that typically involve a researcher bringing a project into a community, this program hinges on a technique called community-based participatory research (CBPR), a research method in which community members and researchers work together to identify health issues and needs and culturally-appropriate methods to address them. Currently, the project is conducting community meetings, designing data collection methods to better understand present and future health-related needs, and pursuing long-term funding to address a host of health interventions.
