American Indian/Alaska Native Cancer Information Resource Center and Learning Exchange (C.I.R.C.L.E.) has been in operation as a national clearinghouse for cancer education materials specific to American Indian and Alaska Native communities for lay and professional use since September 1998. The center has evolved to become the educational arm for the American Indian/Alaska Native Community Networks Program, "Spirit of Eagles," which was funded by an NCI grant from the Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities.
The reputation of the resource center extends nationally. Information requested from the center has led to distribution of thousands of pieces of literature and videos, including materials to numerous conferences.
