Opportunities Under Obama Administration
Inauguration Experience by an Urban Indian
After eight years of the Bush Administration, it might be difficult for an Urban Indian health program or clinic to conceptualize an Executive Branch that is active, engaged, and deeply concerned with the state of Urban Indian health and wellness. The Obama Administration, however, appears to be just that. Not only has the Administration actively sought the perspective of Urban Indians through the National Council of Urban Indian Health during the transition period, but it has also included substantive Indian specific provisions in the Childrens Health Insurance Program Reauthorization and in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
