Tonight on "Tillicum Wawa: Voices of the People," we will be interviewing Dr. Dale Walker, President of theAssociation of American Indian Physicians
and head of the One Sky Center, and Michelle Singer, One Sky Center's communications coordinator.One Sky Center
is a group that deals with substance abuse and addiction in Indian country.
This will be the first of many health care related programs that "Tillicum Wawa" will be bringing you. Rhonda "Shusli" Baseler has had the idea of doing regular segments on health care in Indian country especially since she is a Registered Nurse. We will continue to develop these ideas into programs that we hope will be able to bring knowledge and connections to the Native and non-Native communities about Native American health issues.
