"My goal is that we as tribal communities and tribal people doing this work totally shift that narrative to a whole new headline," says @waboosemissy , the director of the Great Lakes Hub for @JHUCAIH 


The science is clear: Vaccines are safe, effective, and do not cause autism

"States with medical marijuana laws had 27% fewer deaths from opioid painkillers," @JohnsHopkinsSPH  study finds
