On the Fort Peck Reservation in eastern Montana, Kenny Smoker and his colleagues have developed a remarkable network of close-to-client and wraparound services, including school-based clinical, behavioral, and oral health services; home-based care for high-risk Medicaid populations; and equine therapy for troubled adolescents. This program, called Health Promotion Disease Prevention (HPDP) has successfully leveraged the tribal right to bill at the Federal Medicaid rate in order to grow their revenue stream and reinvest in tailored services to address underlying social determinants of health in a poor Assiniboine / Sioux community with some of the highest diabetes, cancer, behavioral health, and substance abuse rates in the nation.
Under the guidance of Kenny Smoker, Dr. Dennis Norman (Faculty Chair of the Harvard University Native American Program and Chair of the MGH Psychology Department), and Dr. Patrick Lee (Director, MGH Global Primary Care Program), up to 4 Harvard medical students will join Kenny's team at Fort Peck for the summer. Specific projects will be determined depending on HPDP's current needs and students' interests, but the overall theme will be improving the care, cost, and dignity of health care delivery to a diverse, underserved, rural Native American community.
We anticipate ample opportunities for longitudinal engagement to follow students' initial summer experiences in Montana.
