by Bonnie M. Duran, DrPH
Associate Professor, Health Services
University of Washington School of Public Health

Bonnie M. Duran, Dr.P.H., is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health Services at the University of Washington School of Public Health, as well as a Director of the Center for Indigenous Health Research. She has over 27 years of experience working in public health research, education and practice with a focus on Native Americans and other communities of color. In the past 15 years, Dr. Duran conducted primary and secondary analysis studies of mental disorder prevalence, victimization, and treatment seeking/barriers to care among Native American women attending Indian Health Service (IHS) facilities and men and women from the largest rural reservation communities in the U.S. Dr. Duran has partnered with IHS and tribes in mental health services and HIV research. Another aspect of her empirical work is the development of indigenous theory and community based participatory research methods. Her overall goals are to work with communities to design treatment and prevention efforts that are effective, empowering, sustainable, and that have maximum public health impact.
