Jamie Ishcomer-Aazami

Acting Chief Operating Officer

Halito! My name is Jamie Ishcomer-Aazami. I am an enrolled citizen of the
Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and have extensive experience serving Indian
Country at the regional and national level. I currently work as the Chief
Operating Officer at the International Association for Indigenous Aging and
have previously worked at the California Rural Indian Health Board, National
Indian Health Board, and National Council of Urban Indian Health.

I am passionate about addressing health disparities for American Indians and
Alaska Natives and am devoted to transdisciplinary problem solving and
systems and performance improvement. I received my Bachelors of Science
in Community Health and minor in American Indian Studies from the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I graduated from Washington
University in St. Louis with my Master of Public Health and Master of Social
Work with a focus on health disparities impacting American Indian and other
Indigenous communities.

I live in the San Fernando Valley with my husband, two young sons,
and our dog.
