Christina Andrews, MA, MBA, MPH

Being a Chairwoman of the Hia-Ced District and former Health and Human Services Executive Director of the Tohono O'odham Nation, I have experience both professionally and personally the adverse affects of substance abuse on in-utero fetuses in my tribe, FAS being a huge problem.  I also experienced the lack of systems to address the needs of this vulnerable and remote, Native American population.

My goal in this program is to build systems at the grass-root level to promote and provide education of what the issue is and how systems can assist cross-culturally and linguistically in bridging this gap of lack of understanding.
