The Seattle Indian Health Board (SIHB) provides community health care and social services for the urban American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) community in the greater Seattle/King County area. SIHB is a private non-profit 501(C)(3) primary health care organization with an holistic and patient-focused approach. We have extensive experience working with urban AI/AN people and are knowledgeable about the diverse cultures, health disparities and health seeking behaviors of Indigenous people. SIHB's comprehensive services include: medical, dental, class A pharmacy, nutrition, mental health, chemical dependency treatment, youth and Elders programs, health education, outreach and access services. Special programs and services include perinatal and postpartum care for moms and babies, a veterans program, diabetes management, cancer screening, and domestic violence services. We provide healing through Traditional Indian Medicine to address illnesses and/or other imbalances affecting the mind, body and spirit. Our accredited family medicine residency program for training physicians is affiliated with Swedish Hospital and the University of Washington, School of Medicine. Also, SIHB established the Urban Indian Health Institute in 2000 to study the health issues affecting urban AI/AN people and to address insufficient research to deal with those health concerns. Together, our inclusive programs and services honor the rich cultural history of Indian Country while improving the well-being of our community members.
