The Ohkay Public Health Nurse began services on July 30,2018. The tribe elected to take their 638 shares for this position so that services would be located in the community.
Services provided by the PHN are population based with an emphasis on Primary Prevention. This includes promoting health, protecting against health threats to the community, and keeping problems from occurring in the first place. These services are provided to individuals, families, community and systems.
PHN services strive to be comprehensive and culturally appropriate for personal and public health.
