For years, tribal members drove 70 miles from their reservation on the coast of Washington to see a doctor. In the late 1980s to early 1990s, miscarriages and infant deaths plagued the Shoalwater Bay Indian Tribe. When epidemiologists studied the troubling rate of infant mortality, they found no single cause, just a glaring lack of healthcare access.
That’s when the tribe committed to a holistic approach to transforming the community’s state of health.

On November 4, 2008, the announcement that Barack Obama became United States President was sweet music to my ears as well as a point of worry, because I knew it was going to be the beginning of a challenging journey for him.

Compared to many other Senate confirmation hearings for potential Cabinet members, the hearing for U.S. Energy Secretary proved much faster and less rocky for nominee and former Texas Republican Governor Rick Perry.
Perry’s hearing lasted about three and a half hours and included only two rounds of questioning. That was far shorter than either Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s nearly six hour hearing for Environmental Protection Agency head, in which he faced four rounds of questions, or the eight and a half hour hearing for Secretary of State nominee and retired ExxonMobil CEO, Rex Tillerson. Before this hearing, Perry was on the record as an enthusiastic climate change denier who previously failed to come up with either the name or the functions of the agency he could soon run.
It seems unclear why Perry, a just-departed board member of Energy Transfer Partners — owner of the Dakota Access pipeline — skated through with far less turbulence than his peers. One potential explanation: some senators from the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources found themselves busy with another task, besides questioning Perry, today. That is, they were in a rush to get to the “Leadership Luncheon” put on by the Trump Inaugural Committee, the latter funded by major corporate sponsors, including Chevron, J.P. Morgan Chase, Bank of America, and others.
