Child Health and Wellness with Denny MedicineBird, Oklahoma Tribal Epidemiology Center

Through the Feed the Children commercials he saw on TV when he was a child himself, Denny MedicineBird developed an interest in public health, although he didn’t know that’s what it was called at the time. Denny’s culture and upbringing inspired him to pursue the work that he is currently doing, which includes enhancing child health and wellness in a traditional community health setting.
