Chickasaw Nation News

With heart disease being the leading cause of death among Americans, the Chickasaw Nation has introduced a new program that focuses on Chickasaw elders. Carla Dyer, LPN, travels to Chickasaw Nation Senior Sites to talk about heart health, with her central message being "know your risk factors." Because there is a correlation between diabetes and heart disease, educating at-risk Chickasaws on the importance of heart health and disease prevention is especially important.
