Citizen Potawatomi Nation Health Services will be offering health screenings and other services on Friday, June 23 and Saturday, June 24 during the 2023 Family Reunion Festival.

Carotid artery screenings, behavioral health information, and diabetes nutrition and prevention information are available at FireLake Arena from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.

Most Festival guests are looking forward to the cultural activities, but the event is also a good time to consider overall health and wellness.

“CPNHS offers a multitude of health services to CPN tribal members that may be challenging to access or financially prohibitive in their home states,” said CPNHS Clinic Operations Director Lauren Bristow. “Taking a few moments out of your weekend for preventive screenings or a routine wellness visit supports the overall wellness of our Tribal members and provides the opportunity to catch potential health concerns before they become a problem.”

CPNHS operates two health clinics near Shawnee, providing primary medical care, prenatal care, dentistry, optometry, public health services, lab services, pharmacy, X-ray, ultrasound and mammography. Diabetic care and a weekly cardiology clinic are available to patients.

In addition to the Festival health screenings, informational sessions will cover cardiopulmonary resuscitation, automatic external defibrillators and naloxone. The course meets Friday from 9 to 11 a.m., 1 to 3 p.m. and 3 to 5 p.m.; and Saturday from 9 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. Registration is not necessary, but seating is limited. Each session is limited to the first eight participants. The sessions will take place at Mission Hill, located next to the Raymond Peltier Park and powwow grounds.

While Tribal members attend Festival, a first aid tent will be available from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. to assist with any minor medical issues.

“Our team looks forward to Festival every year, and we especially enjoy seeing and catching up with some of the patients who only come to Health Services during Festival,” Bristow said.
