Tribal leaders: Reservation health care needs help


U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., and Mary Wakefield, acting deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, met with about a dozen tribal leaders in Grand Forks Thursday to address health care issues faced by American Indians living in the Great Plains.

"We don't want to hide anything under the rug," Wakefield said, as she outlined a plan to improve care provided by Indian Health Services, a division within the Department of Health and Human Services. "If we talk about (problems), we can work quickly to resolve them."
