Dr. Tom Becker
“I value my colleagues who share in the vision and in this work. Indian Country ECHO is a terrific platform to reach audiences of all sorts…very clever! Why did we not think of this in the 1950’s?”
Tom Becker, MD, PhD, has spent his entire career as an epidemiologist focused on Indian health issues. He trained in internal medicine, epidemiology, and anthropology and currently serves as a medical epidemiologist at the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board. Although Tom has a variety of research interests, the common theme in his work centers around minority health disparities.

Tom is passionate about mentoring trainees, primarily MPH students and American Indians who sought research training.
