USPHS Community Health and Service Missions: Operation Fortitude - The Lakota Sioux Experience

This presentation shares the Lakota Sioux experience through the view of a USPHS Team Commander who participated in a Community Health and Service Mission, designed to meet the field-based training needs of emergency response teams. During the session, there will also be a discussion of the partnership between the U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS), the Lakota Sioux Tribe, and a non-government organization (Remote Area Medical). Many photos and cultural experiences will be shared to illustrate the mission.
