After one year, the Citizen Potawatomi Nation Safety Department has trained thousands of Tribal employees how to perform CPR and use an automated external defibrillator. The Nation’s goal remains to have every employee trained and ready to help.
Dr. Patrick Kennedye, member of the Peltier family, recently joined CPN Health Services as a primary care physician. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma Medical School in 2015 with the help of CPN scholarships.
The Peltier family descendant found a renewed sense of purpose. She sought to improve the recovery process for others as the pandemic worsened in the United States; Dykstra-Tibbs learned her body’s response to the virus could benefit others, which prompted her to donate toward a new type of treatment in Oklahoma.
