OPB: American Indian Physicians meeting in Oregon this week





"Some 200 American Indian and Alaskan Native physicians are in Portland this week to address the unique health issues among Native Americans.

The annual gathering of the Association of American Indian Physicians is this week.

Dr. R. Dale Walker is the AAIP President, and he's a professor at Oregon Health and Science University.

Dr. Walker says the group has been meeting for four decades. And in that time, Indian health has been a mixture of good news and bad."
