Oklahoma Voices: 2007 Leader To Leader Conference (Dec 01, 2008)
Oklahoma Voices presents edited excerpts from a historic meeting between tribal leaders and Oklahoma state government officials that happened on the OU campus one year ago. The one day event, known as the Leader To Leader Conference, took place in the Center for Continuing Education’s Forum building.
Although there were four different panels at the conference…covering gaming, business and sovereignty, due to time constraints we chose to air the panel on Indian Health care and the diabetes epidemic amongst Oklahoma’s native tribes. Former state senator Cal Hobson, who is now the executive director for operations for OU Outreach, was host and moderator for the day. Also speaking was Dr. James Pappas, Vice President of University Outreach and Dean of the College of Liberal Studies at the University of Oklahoma. He was followed by Neal McCaleb, member of the Chickasaw Nation and former head of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and twice head of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.
The members of the panel on Indian Health Care were Dr Timothy Lyons, who is the medical director of the Harold Hamm Oklahoma Diabetes Center in Oklahoma City…Dr. Mike Crutcher, Oklahoma State Health Commissioner…Mike Fogerty, Chief Executive Officer of the Oklahoma Health Authority, and Melissa Gower, who is the Director of the Cherokee Nation’s Health Services.
