Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa, Inc.

Annual Report 2013

Caring is strong medicine


The mission of Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa, Inc. (IHCRC) is to provide quality, comprehensive health care to Tulsa area Indian people in a culturally sensitive manner that promotes good health, well being and harmony. The vision of IHCRC is to eliminate health disparities, expand innovative familyfocused practices and promote an embracing approach to care that strengthens physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness within the Indian community. The long-term health promotion goal is to improve general health status and reduce the incidence and severity of chronic disease by engaging the Indian community in ongoing health promotion, prevention and disease management activities. The Medicine Wheel teaches us the four distinctive and powerful elements of fire, water, earth and air are a part of the physical world. Each of the elements is to be respected equally for its gift of life. The wheel also teaches us we have four aspects to our nature – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. To become a well balanced healthy individual, each of these aspects must be equally expressed through the development and use of our will.

The wheel is an ancient symbol used by most native people of the Americas. The wheel is used to express holistic, cyclical and harmonious concepts – the four winds, the four cardinal directions and other relationships that express balance and interrelationship.


2013 Letter from the President and the CEO While looking back over the past year it is extraordinary how Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa, Inc. continues to extend its reach to Tulsa Indian people. One thing that is quite clear to see is that through all the expansions and improvements at the clinic a single theme runs deep, teamwork. The President of the Board of Trustees and the Chief Executive Officer have a shared leadership responsibility of continually positioning Indian Health Care Resource Center, so its sustainability is ensured. This obligation is not accomplished by two people; it takes a team of dedicated individuals working as a unit to accomplish this one responsibility for one reason-to serve Indian people. Team members include the Board of Trustees who help secure resources, build community support and provide strategic expertise to ready Indian Health Care Resource Center for tomorrow. Another primary team member is the Chief Executive Director, who acts as the primary liaison to external stakeholders and ensures that the right people, acting as a team, are running the operations and delivering the services. Teamwork is the key to implementing Indian Health Care’s mission of promoting health and healthy living within the Tulsa Indian community. With every annual report, we have the opportunity to pause and reflect on our team’s prior year’s accomplishments, as well as contemplate the future. As you read this year’s annual report, you will learn about the many services and accomplishments of Indian Health Care. You also will be able to read the personal stories of a few patients.

Accomplishments:

• Indian Health Care continued supporting Indian culture through its sponsorship of the 5th annual Restoring Harmony Pow Wow that showcased Indian children in leadership positions and hosting 400 children in ageappropriate, culturally-sensitive summer camps and other activities throughout the year designed to advance positive, physical and behavioral lifestyles while keeping Indian culture in mind. • The dedication of the Medicine Park statues located in the traffic triangle adjacent to Indian Health Care’s facility reaffirmed our cultural pride and added beauty to the City of Tulsa.

Looking forward, we anticipate Indian Health Care will face these major challenges.

Challenges: • Another reduction of federal support due to the federal budget sequestration. • A medical manpower shortage that includes physicians, nurses and allied health workers. This challenge is affecting the entire State of Oklahoma. • Our ongoing challenge to impact behavioral lifestyle changes that reduce obesity, diabetes, smoking and sedimentary lifestyles.

In a continual effort to promote health and well-being, conceptual planning has begun for Phase III of IHCRC’s campus. This future expansion will encompass a Wellness Center to the north of IHCRC. If our past is a predictor of our future, Indian Health Care’s team approach will address the above, among other challenges; turning these hurdles into accomplishments. Our team’s dedication to our mission never waivers. Janice Edmiston, President, IHCRC Board of Trustees

• 96% of the nearly 1,500 patients surveyed this year replied IHCRC services met their needs, 97% would recommend IHCRC services to family and friends and 98% believed staff was interested in their problems and treated them with respect. The survey’s results reaffirmed we practice our motto, Caring is Strong Medicine.

eyton Pratt is a Junior at Sperry High School. Like most boys his age, Peyton enjoys many sports and being part of a team. Peyton has become a leader and role model for many of his teammates and those he mentors. Being the oldest of three boys can be a challenge at times, but Peyton has armed himself with the right tools to be an excellent example for his two younger brothers. Peyton attended the Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa, Inc. camps from 1st grade through 9th grade. The camps made a lasting impression on Peyton’s life. The IHCRC Leadership Camp provided

him with the tools he needs to be a strong and respectful leader. The Health and Wellness Camps taught him how to live a healthy lifestyle. Peyton has applied these skills to all the activities and sports he participates in at school, including Key Club, National Honors Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, basketball and baseball. Peyton said, “Without the leadership skills I learned at camp, I would not have the opportunities I currently have in front of me. I know the lessons I learned will continue to lead me into bigger and better things as I go on to new adventures in my life.”

Ronald George Mr. George said, “Go d is my Chief Physician ,” he knows he would not be where he is today without the st aff at Indian Health Care Resource Center.

A

dversity is something Ronald George has become accustom to over the years. Overcoming that adversity is something he has just learned the past few years. Mr. George knows without his faith, the support of his family and the care he receives from Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa, he would not have been able to make such positive changes to his life. It was not long ago, Ronald was homeless and battling alcoholism. Three years ago he made the decision to conquer his addiction, change his life and reconnect with his estranged son. Ronald will soon celebrate three years of sobriety and is currently living

with his son. Recently, Ronald was diagnosed with lung cancer, and is currently receiving daily radiation and weekly chemotherapy treatments. As Ronald sees it, this is just another mountain to conquer and he knows he will prevail. Mr. George is deeply appreciative for the assistance and support his medical team has provided him during his battles. Mr. George said, “God is my Chief Physician,” he knows he would not be where he is today without the staff at Indian Health Care Resource Center. Ronald has a great outlook for his future, and encourages as many people as he can along the way.

“The Tulsa clinic is a lifesaver for those ho individuals like me w d in are between jobs an they life situations where may be uninsured...”

T

aking on a new challenge is nothing new for Marilyn Beilke. When Marilyn’s grown son decided to attend the University of Tulsa, she decided to join him. She enrolled in the University of Tulsa Law School. In 2001, Marilyn graduated with a Juris Doctor degree and immediately began to practice Native American and Environmental Law. Like many women, Marilyn uses her birthday as the yearly reminder to schedule a mammogram. Similar to years past, this year she came to the clinic and spent part of her birthday with Indian Health Care Resource Center’s mammographer, Karen McAhren. Over the years this annual visit had become a tradition. However, this year the tradition changed. The results were dramatically different from previous years. Not only did she have a lump on her breast, but the metastasized

cancer had spread to her lymph nodes on both sides. Marilyn underwent a double mastectomy and is currently undergoing chemotherapy prior to beginning radiation therapy. Without the digital mammogram exam funded by the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, she received in the Diagnostic Imaging department at the Indian Health Care Resource Center, her prognosis would be far less optimistic. She is thankful for the compassion and support that Karen McAhren, a breast cancer survivor herself, has given her over the past months. Marilyn said, “The Tulsa clinic is a lifesaver for those individuals like me who are between jobs and in life situations where they may be uninsured. Karen is so upbeat! She has helped me by providing a face of survival. Thank you Indian Health Care Resource Center and Karen!”

R

aising a family in today’s world can be a challenge for anyone. There are struggles and heartaches along the way for everyone; however, some families’ struggles are harder to conquer. Fred, Mona and Harrison Sapulpa came to Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa, Inc. in need of guidance and support. The Sapulpas worked with the clinic’s Systems of Care program to get the extra help they needed to strengthen their family unit. They were able to build a support system with family, friends and teachers to guide them to success. The Sapulpa family has graduated from the Systems

of Care program and is now juggling all of Harrison’s activities. Harrison currently participates in soccer, Tae Kwon Do, Boy Scouts, and has shown marked improvement at school. The family is very close and pride themselves on supporting each other. Fred stated, “The influence of the Systems of Care program on my family has been very positive and we are grateful for their support.” The Sapulpas have taken their generosity and support to the community level by participating in the Tulsa Indian Community Advisory Team, which is the community force behind Systems of Care.

Sue Valliere Sue is living proof that with good medical care and diabetes selfmanagement skills, people can live a long, healthy life with diabetes.

W

hen asked to describe Sue Valliere, Nancy O’Banion, Indian Health Care Resource Center of Tulsa’s Director of Health and Wellness, said simply “She is a trooper!” Just six months after the birth of her son, Sue knew that something was wrong with her. Sue unexpectedly went from 132 pounds to 88 pounds and couldn’t explain the dramatic weight loss. Finally, Sue found out what was wrong: she had Type 1 Diabetes. That was over 40 years ago. In her early 30’s, Sue predicted she would not live past the age of 60. When someone asked Sue about

setting up an IRA for retirement, she said, “No, why would I do that? I won’t be alive!” Sue credits her new found longevity to her diligence when it comes to taking the advice of her patient care team – doctors, nurses, dietitians and case managers – in addition to being consistent in checking her blood sugar several times a day. Sue is living proof that with good medical care and diabetes self-management skills, people can live a long, healthy life with diabetes. Sue’s nine grandchildren and three great-grandchildren have a wonderful role model, a grandmother who takes good care of her health.
