Health and Health Care Forum: Oregon Public Health Association, Part 2
Host Roberta Hall speaks with Kerri Lopez, staff member at Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board, who works with tribal governments in Oregon, Idaho and Washington on developing policies and programs that are beneficial to their tribal members and employees. In the program she describes the policy approach as one in which she and tribal leaders discuss ways to address known health problems and helps them develop programs to meet their individual needs. Kerri gave a talk at the Oregon Public Health Association meetings in October and has served on the OPHA board.
