The University of New Mexico Health Sciences (NMHS) Center for Participatory Research holds a Summer Institute, Community Based Participatory Research Institute for Health: Indigenous and Critical Methodologies.31 The annual summer institute is intended for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, community partners, academic-community teams, and others. The institute explores how CBPR intersects with indigenous and critical methodologies, including the challenges for academic researchers and community members to discover knowledge for improved community health.31
