Civil rights commission looks at Native health care
Thursday, October 9, 2003

The U.S. Civil Rights Commission will spend two days in New Mexico examining health care disparities affecting Native Americans.

The commission will tour the Gallup Indian Medical Center on October 16. The commission will hold a day-long briefing in Albuquerque the following day. The briefing will take place at the Doubletree Hotel on 201 Marquette Avenue from 9:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.

The commission in July released a report documenting unmet needs in Indian Country. The report said the federal government has failed to provide enough funds to the Indian Health Service (IHS).
