Health Fair Results

The Absentee Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma held their 70th SemiAnnual General Council Meeting at the  AST Little Axe Health Center on November 10, 2012. The Absentee Shawnee Tribal Health System, AST  Tribal Programs and visiting health booths had a great time visiting and meeting AST Tribal members  and their families, while providing health information and screening. According to evaluation results  the Health Fair and Fun/Run Walk was a success. Thank You for the opportunity for allowing the Health  Departments and others to share important health information.

New Clinic Hours for Shawnee and Little Axe Clinics

Beginning on Dec. 31st, there will be new clinic hours for both clinics. The Shawnee  Clinic will be open 7:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. The Little Axe  Clinic will be open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. Both clinics  will continue to be closed on the first and third Wednesday afternoons from 12:00 pm to  5:00 pm for staff meetings, conferences, and trainings. The pharmacies will only be  closed on the first Wednesday afternoons but will remain open on the third Wednesday  afternoon. These changes were necessary due to the lack of patients requesting the early  morning times in Little Axe and the later times at both clinics. We appreciate all of you  for understanding the changes we are making. We welcome five new employees to the clinic staff. In Little Axe we have a new  Behavioral Health Director and a new counselor. Dara Thorpe is our new director. She  has been with the tribe before and we welcome her back. We know she is going to be a  great asset to the department and has already made so many terrific changes and we have  seen great progress since she came on board last month. Our other new employee in that  department is Cindy Honeycutt.

Absentee Shawnee Tribal Health Update

This past month has been a very great month for all the health programs. We have be reorganizing some of the programs and adding a few more benefits for the tribal members. In the Shawnee Clinic, Dr. Walsh is a part time internal medicine physician who is slowly building up her practice. Because of this, there are many patients still waiting to get appointments and because of the need for another provider, we are going to add a full time physician in Shawnee. We are currently advertising for medical providers and hope to have someone hired by the end of the year. This will help to add more patients to the Shawnee location and have a full time medical provider in the Shawnee Clinic that help with the patient load currently being carried by Stacy Curtis, PA. Once we get a physician hired, we will make sure to announce this in the tribal newsletter.
