In Brent D. Simcosky's presentation, "Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe: Tribal Best Practices-Providing Better Healthcare By Thinking Outside the Circle," he discusses the approach Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe developed to provide the best healthcare possible to its citizens despite inadequate resources.  

Stephen Cornell argues that focusing on social determinants of health examines health care at the community level then works toward the individual. For Native nations, factors such as control, efficacy, and self-governance impact the entire community and individual lives; and result in a healthy community.
