RAPID CITY, S.D. — Tinka Duran has been with the Great Plains Tribal Leader’s Health Board for 14 years, and was recently named the senior director of the Great Plains Epidemiology Center. Duran, member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, holds her degree in Social Science from Oglala Lakota College and a master’s in public health from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. She says the knowledge and partnerships made through those years with Great Plains have set her up well for the challenge.
