Native Health Expert Ties History to Native Health Care


Excerpt from the article, for the full article please see the link above:
"Equity over equality: Equality gives everyone the same care, while equity would give people the appropriate care based on community and cultural needs. “Equality is giving everyone a pair of shoes. Equity is giving everyone a pair of shoes that fits,” Warne said. Traditional American Indian healing methods, such as meditation, prayer and healing ceremonies, can help the treatment and recovery processes, but modern health care often leaves those powers untapped."

Warne receives national honor and delivers keynote address at leadership conference

Donald Warne, M.D., the chair of the Master of Public Health Program in the College of Health Professions at NDSU was keynote speaker at the National Council of Urban Indian Health Leadership Conference held May 12-13 in San Diego, California. Warne’s presentation was titled “Integrated health care practices from a cultural perspective.”
Dr. Warne also was recognized during the conference as a national honoree at the 2016 Pendleton Blanket Recognition Dinner. The National Council of Urban Indian Health “recognizes American Indian and Alaska Native health leaders and medical practitioners who exemplify effective use of culturally-grounded, strengths-based approaches and interventions, in collaboration with modern practices of health, education, and medicine, to improve the health and well-being of urban Indians,” according to the group’s announcement of the event.
The award acknowledges the importance of integrating traditional and culturally competent practices with overall health strategies to treat the whole person. Dr. Warne is a member of the Oglala Lakota Nation from Pine Ridge, South Dakota.
In a release about the award, NCUIH said:  “He has a proven commitment to advancing American Indian and Alaska Native wellness through his advocacy for using science and ethics to improve Native public health; incorporating traditional holistic practices that treat the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual condition; and focusing more investment on preventive care to keep people healthy rather than waiting to treat them when they are sick.”
