HPA and MSA are thrilled to invite you to a conversation with Adrienne Schuler, an aspiring physician, and Coty Brayboy, a public health nurse consultant, where they will talk about their journeys into the health workforce as Native People.

The voices of Native Americans and Indigenous Peoples are often missing at decision-making tables and, as a result, many of their needs remain unheard and unaddressed. We are excited for the opportunity to learn about their work and about the impact they are making on the many health disparities that disproportionately affect Native Peoples.

Adrienne Schuler, MD Candidate (she/her) is a member of the Six Nations of the Grand River. She is a third-year medical student at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine.

Coty Brayboy, MPH, BSN, RN (he/him) is an enrolled member of the Lumbee Tribe. He serves as a Public Health Nurse Consultant for the NC Communicable Disease Branch on the COVID-19 pandemic response team. In this role, Brayboy advocates for the health of NC’s eight tribes in collaboration with local, tribal and state partners. He is currently enrolled in the Doctor of Nursing Practice program at East Carolina University.

*Co-sponsored and hosted with Northwestern Multicultural Student Affairs (MSA)
