Assistant Professor, Centers for American Indian and Alaska Native Health, University of Colorado
Aurora, Colorado

As a member of Alaska’s Metlakatla Indian Community (Tsimshian), Jerreed is¬†dedicated to health research for North American Indigenous (Alaska Native,¬†American Indian, First Nations, and Native Hawaiian) populations. Dr. Ivanich is an¬†Assistant Professor at the Colorado School of Public Health, Centers for American¬†Indian and Alaska Native Health, and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Johns¬†Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Center for American Indian Health. His¬†work meets at the intersections of prevention science, social network analysis, and¬†adolescent health to reduce substance use and suicide in tribal communities.¬†Through community-based participatory research, Dr. Ivanich aims to take the¬†knowledge and strengths of tribal communities and put them in dialogue with the¬†broader research field to improve public health and advance scientific methods.¬†When Dr. Ivanich is not working, he loves spending time with his wife and two¬†amazing daughters. They all enjoy skiing together in beautiful Colorado. As a solo¬†hobby, Dr. Ivanich recently picked up triathlon training and racing and loves that this¬†allows him to connect to nature while exercising. The activity that fills his spiritual¬†cup is volunteering to teach an early morning church seminary class to local high¬†school sophomore students three days a week.
