Tribal Doctor To Discuss American Indian Health
BROOKINGS, SD -

An Oglala Lakota doctor will discuss Native American health disparities during a presentation at South Dakota State University next week.

Don Warne is a member of the Oglala Lakota Tribe and completed medical school at Stanford University. He will discuss American Indian heath during a presentation at SDSU on Wednesday. The presentation is free and open to the public.

As a descendent of Native American healers, Warne says he has respect for traditional healing customs. He says the medicine wheel is a symbol of those beliefs.

The presentation is part of SDSU's Common Read events this semester focusing on Native American topics and issues.
