Cherokee Nation's Health Services Receives Good Review

Cherokee Nation

The Cherokee Nation's health services department is receiving accolades for meeting certain health criteria.

Cherokee Nation Health Services and the tribe's Head Start program recently received the Certified Healthy Oklahoma award from the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

Three of the tribe's health centers also received the award. They are the Vinita Health Center, Three Rivers Health Center in Muskogee and Redbird Smith Health Center in Sallisaw.

Certification is given to businesses, restaurants, schools, campuses and communities based on health screenings, tobacco prevention, behavioral health services and more.
