- Summary of Services Provided
The Indian Health Board of Minneapolis is a multi-service health care clinic serving American Indians and the general public. Indian Health Board of Minneapolis began in the Phillips Neighborhood in 1971 after a local Ojibwe named Gloria lost her life due to negligent treatment based on her ethnic and racial background. Activists refused to let urban Indians be ignored any longer in the Twin Cities area, which inspired the Indian Health Board of Minneapolis. For the first time, urban Indians in Minneapolis had access to health care and services from organizations operated by American Indians for American Indian people.
Services provided include confidential sexual health screenings, primary medical, dental, and counseling services. In addition, community education is provided for by the Community Health Department. For clients in Minneapolis and St. Paul, transportation assistance for appointments is available.
