Citizen Potawatomi Nation Health Services will be offering primary care and other services on Friday, June 28 and Saturday, June 29 during the 2024 Family Reunion Festival.

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 wealth of health services to CPN Tribal members that may be challenging to access or financially prohibitive in their home states,” said CPNHS Clinic Operations Administrator 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 six health clinics near Shawnee, providing primary medical care, dentistry, optometry, diabetes management, chiropractic care, public health services, lab services, pharmacy, advanced imaging and mammography.

In addition to on-site health services, 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 visiting with some of our patients who only come to Health Services during Festival,” Bristow said.

Tribal members may call to schedule an appointment during Festival. Clinics will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
