Welcome
Glasses 14 Since HIV was discovered in the 1980’s, we have come a long way in under-
PHS Athletics 16 standing how the virus is spread and how we can prevent it. HIV cannot be
18 cured, but there are effective medications to treat it. With early and consistent

treatment, a patient infected with HIV can stay healthy and keep the virus levels

in their blood so low it cannot be detected or spread to another person.

ing so, the service unit is specifically looking at
how we may recruit, develop and retain a dedi-
cated, competent and caring workforce.

Chief Nurse Executive CDR Susan Wood has
met with the Scholarship Counselor of the
Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes’ Youth Program.
The service unit is looking at ways to provide
mentorship opportunities within CSU’s facilities
to interested youth.

Indian Health Service Mission

To raise the physical, mental, social, and spiritual health of
American Indians and Alaska Natives to the highest level.

Clinton Service Unit Vision

To provide quality health care services focusing on prevention,
restoration and collaborative relationships that are valued and
exceeds the needs of our patients, community, and tribal partners.

“The IHS mission is something that has a deep meaning to me,” said Donna Hill, Clinton Indian
Health Center medical records technician/coder. “I was born in an IHS hospital and received medical
care all of my life form there. I had always wanted to work and be a part of this important team I saw
as a child and as an adult. I have now been a part of this team providing essential, vital health care
to American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) for 26 years. I am proud IHS works with Tribes so

closely to improve and support important needs. Whether it is the opioid crisis, HIV, protecting
children from sexual abuse by health care providers, hepatitis c, diabetes, or so many other health
issues. I believe the important mission of health care is being addressed as best it can to the 2.6

million AI/AN.

According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute,
American Indian and Alaska Native women are 20-30% more
likely than non-Native women to die from heart disease. CSU’s
Public Health Nursing partnered with the Cheyenne and Arap-
aho Tribes’ Health Education program on February 7th to pro-
mote the American Heart Association’s annual Go Red for
Women event at the tribal complex.

The annual Go Red for Women event is no longer just about
wearing red; it’s no longer just about sharing heart health facts.
It’s about all women making a commitment to stand together with Go Red and taking charge of their
own heart health as well as the health of those they can’t bear to live without.

If you had heart disease, would you recognize the symptoms? Many people are familiar with the
scene of someone clutching their chest and falling to the ground, but there’s plenty more you need
to know. While there are many similarities in the symptoms of heart disease in men and women,
there are even more differences — differences that could save, or end your life if you don’t know
them. So learn the signs and symptoms of heart attack and stroke.

HIV continued from cover…

With the right treatment, the vast majority of patients infected with HIV can lead a long,
healthy life without spreading the disease to their loved ones.

There are medications available called “pre-exposure prophylaxis” (PREP) people can take if they
are at high risk of coming into contact with the virus. When taken regularly, these medications can
dramatically lower a person’s risk of becoming infected.

Who is at risk for HIV infection? HIV is mainly spread by having sex (anal or vaginal) or sharing in-
jection supplies with someone who is infected with the virus. People under the influence of substanc-
es are at higher risk of infection because they may engage in risky behaviors like having sex without
a condom, having multiple sex partners, or trading sex for money or drugs. Illegal injection drug use
is especially risky because of the sharing of syringes and other supplies that could have infected
blood in them. HIV can survive in a syringe for up to 42 days. Babies born to women with untreated
HIV are at risk for infection.

Many people infected with HIV do not know they have it. The disease stays silent for several years
before the damage is done and the patient becomes ill. During this silent stage, an infected person
could infect many others without knowing anything is wrong.

The Indian Health Service (IHS) across the nation is working to increase screening, diagnosis, pre-
vention and treatment of HIV. From 2012-2016, HIV screening increased by 63 percent amongst
American Indians and Alaskan Natives. During this time, there was a 34 percent increase in HIV di-
agnoses. This increase in diagnoses was not necessarily due to more people becoming infected, but
due to an increase in the amount of silent infections being found.

It is estimated over a third of American Indians and Alaskan Natives living with HIV do not
know they are infected.

HIV can be treated and prevented, but the first step is identifying patients at risk. The Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends screening everyone between the ages of 13 to
64 at least once. People at higher risk should be screened every year, and sometimes more often. It
is important to tell your health care team about anything putting you at risk for HIV infection to en-
sure you are screened appropriately.

Interdisciplinary
Pain Management

For many people, living with pain is a way of life. CSU has taken steps to improve the quality of life
for those living with chronic pain and are committed to treating these patients through the Interdisci-
plinary Pain Management (IPM) program. CSU’s IPM program is designed to help patients with pain
become part of the treatment team and take an active role in regaining control of their life in spite of
the pain. The program is focused on the total person, not just the pain.

What is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain is defined as persistent pain, which can be either continuous or recurrent and of suffi-
cient duration and intensity to adversely affect a patient’s well-being, level of function, and quality of
life. Chronic pain is persistent, typically three months or more, and exists beyond an expected time
for healing.

Phase I of CSU’s IPM initially started in 2016. Patients referred to the IPM program are offered a
team approach to focus on pain relief and management through combining the services of behavior-
al health, physical therapy, chiropractic intervention, and massage therapy. These disciplines work
cohesively together with one goal in mind: to educate and facilitate patients’ abilities to cope with
chronic pain.

The IPM program is a successful alternative to the use of pain medications, such as opioids, to treat
pain and prevent addiction to medication. The team works with patients to put together a functional
goal and develop a treatment plan aimed at developing skills and techniques for an increased quality
of life.

LCDR Lori Lee, CSU lead physical therapist, provides the team continued advanced knowledge on
physical therapy intervention. This evidence-based approach educates the patient on pain neurosci-
ence and the brain, graded intervention, movement, and teaches exercises, stretches, behavior and
biomechanical modifications, and techniques to help decrease pain, increase strength, range of mo-
tion, endurance, balance, walking abilities, and functional activities. The program also offers manual
therapy, dry needling, electrical stimulation, moist heat, cryotherapy, ultrasound, and iontophoresis.

Massage therapy is used to reduce pain caused by muscle tension. Massage works to increase the
circulation of blood and deliver nutrients to the areas of chronic pain. (Pain continued on page 5...)

The use of chiropractic care is aimed to re-align and provide skeletal stabilization to reduce pain.
The chiropractor evaluates patients for joint restriction on the premise of structure affecting function.
The chiropractor uses manipulation, manual therapy techniques, modalities, stretch and exercise to
improve joint motion and decrease nerve irritation allowing for functional and postural correction.

Dr. Kara Richardson-Cline, behavioral health director, has trained the team on neuroscience of
chronic pain and the role a pain psychologist plays in integrated pain management.

As CSU moves forward with the development of Phase II of the IPM program, the service unit is
providing monthly educational advancements in the management of pain to the treatment team and
staff. LCDR Lee has introduced Graded Motor Imagery (GMI), a new treatment technique of brain
exercises using motor imagery, left/right brain discrimination, and mirror therapy.

According to the National Institutes of Health, more people live with chronic pain than cancer, heart
disease, and diabetes combined. CSU is committed to improving the health of Native Americans and
Alaska Natives with chronic pain.

Workplace Wellness

The CSU continues to address and prioritize the needs of the dedicated staff working within our ser-
vice unit. One of the many initiatives the service unit focuses on is to recruit, develop and retain a
dedicated, competent and caring workforce.

CSU is committed to ensuring the people working within each of the facilities are healthy in body and
mind. The service unit has established a Workplace Wellness committee to develop a comprehen-
sive wellness program to encourage employees to live a healthier lifestyle

“Happy, healthy employees are more likely to feel passionate about their jobs,” said Susan Rose,
physical medicine and rehabilitation department supervisor. “Workplace wellness is an integral part
of our culture to promote healthy lifestyles and behaviors during and after office hours. It can have a
positive effect not only on our employees, but the care we provide and extend to our American Indi-
an and Alaska Native population.”

Some of the few initiatives and opportunities the Workplace Wellness committee is working towards
in 2020 consist of:

 Filtered water stations. Water is by far the most important nutrient for the human body. Next to
oxygen, the human body needs water to survive and is important to take in as much as we can.
Water consumption is crucial to a healthy lifestyle.

 Ergonomic work environment assessments. Workplace ergonomics for every employee avoids
fatigue, frustration and pain. Designing a workplace and making improvements to improve pro-
cesses and remove risk factors leading to musculoskeletal injuries allows for maximum perfor-
mance and productivity. CSU is committed to safety and health as a core value.

 Workplace physical activity. Access to
gym equipment providing physical fitness
within the work environment. Encouraging
employees to get up from their desk and
move often to stay active and healthy.

(Workplace Wellness continued on page 7…)

Workplace Wellness continued...

 Workplace wellness program. Individualized programs tailored to personal needs for fitness and
wellness. Wellness programs incorporate many aspects of fitness with health education, preven-
tion, mental well-being and, interventions of fitness at the individual’s level of abilities.

 Holistic mental health happiness. Combating stress from work and personal lives to make the
individual feel happy, relaxed, and sociable are an essential part of everyone’s health. Organiza-
tional burnout and disengagement can be stopped by focusing on the emotional well-being of
each of our team members.

 Healthy food choices. Promoting healthy eating in the workplace benefits everyone.
 Supportive clinic services for health improvement. Continued programs of smoking cessation,

annual flu vaccinations, and preventive medical health care promotes healthy lifestyle outcomes.
Over the course of the next year, look for these new initiatives and activities to roll out from the
Workplace Wellness committee. “CSU strives to offer our staff ways to get healthy and reach their
maximum wellness goals,” said Rose. “Life is not merely being alive, but being well.”

Certified Healthcare Environmental
Services Technician Training

Through a partnership between the IHS Office of Quality and Portland Area’s Western Oregon Ser-
vice Unit, CSU’s Infection Preventionist Jane Nickel and Environmental Services (EVS) Supervisor
Sheila Fuller, completed the American Hospital Association’s Certified Healthcare Environmental
Services Technician Train-the-Trainer Course in Salem, Oregon.

Through proper care and maintenance of the health care environment, environmental services tech-
nicians play an essential role in patients’ experience of care, as well as ensuring patient safety and
satisfaction. Today’s environmental services teams strive to go beyond cleaning, disinfecting, and
caring for the environment. They seek to create clean and quiet healing atmospheres that lead to
improved outcomes.

In order to achieve these quality outcomes, environmental service technicians must be well-trained
and demonstrate competence in a number of areas.

“This class was chocked full of wonderful information,” said
Nickel. “The games, activities, and materials were excellent
avenues for learning, understanding and retention. This certi-
fication will build confidence in our staff and allow for gaining
pertinent information and knowledge in this field of work.”

Environmental Services Technician Certification will not only
signify technical accomplishment, but also commitment to
performance excellence. All CSU staff within EVS will re-
ceive training through Nickel and Fuller to be eligible to sit for
the online exam to obtain certification as a Certified
Healthcare Environmental Services Technician.

“I truly believe the knowledge gained from this informative
training will take the EVS department to another level of con-
fidence and performance,” said Fuller.

Give Kids a Smile

As part of a historic collaboration with the American Dental Association on
the Give Kids a Smile program, the Clinton Dental Department participated
in their first event on February 6th. Since the program launched nationally
in 2003, about six million underserved children have received free oral
health services, raising awareness on the importance of oral health to
overall health and the need that exists among millions of children who go without dental care.
American Indian and Alaska native children seen at Clinton Indian Health Center for the Give Kids a
Smile program were provided comprehensive examinations, dental cleanings, sealants, fillings, and
fluoride applications.

Contact Lens Fittings

The Clinton Optometry Department is currently performing limited contact lens fittings. At this
time, the department is only fitting Cooper Vision products for patients with high amounts of pre-
scription. If you feel you may be a good candidate for
contact lens, contact the Optometry Department at
580.331.3413 to schedule an exam. Those patients
who qualify to receive contact lens will receive a pre-
scription to purchase the contact lenses on their own.
On average, it takes approximately three visits for a
successful contact lens fitting.

Caring for those with Diabetes

Learning about diabetes is an ongoing process. Your fight against type 2 diabetes is one you don’t
have to face alone. Clinton Indian Health Center is here to support and assist patients and families
affected by diabetes in reducing the risk for complications. A variety of programs and activities are
available, including Diabetes Day, Diabetes Education Class, and the Diabetes Support Group.
Diabetes Day is offered the second Tuesday of each month. Providers of the Outpatient Clinic are
available to manage diabetes and provide care. Patients may obtain annual diabetes labs and walk-
in appointments for Dental, Optometry, and Podiatry on this day. Education on diabetes self-care is
provided to patients in the waiting room on nutrition, physical activity, and goal setting.
A Diabetes Education Class is offered each month at Clinton Indian Health Center. This program,
accredited through the American Association of Diabetes Educators, provides patients with the
knowledge and skills to help make sense of diabetes. All aspects of diabetes self-management are
discussed, including: diabetes disease process, nutrition, physical activity, medications (pills and in-
sulin), monitoring, preventing complications, and lifestyle change.
For those with diabetes, getting support is very important. Diabetes is not only physical, but comes
with a lot of psychological pressure which may be difficult to resolve alone. Clinton Indian Health
Center has developed a community through their weekly Diabetes Support Group to deal with chal-
lenges of living with diabetes. The group meets for an hour every Tuesday at 10 am in the Outpa-
tient Conference Room. Pre-registration is not needed to attend a support group meeting.

Mental Health First Aid

CSU continues to train staff on Mental Health First Aid. On February 19th, Inte-
grated Behavioral Health Specialist Afton Luttrell and Laboratory Technician LT
Zohaib Ishaq led employees of both CSU and the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes
on how to better understand depression and provide support to patients and
community members in need.

Mental Health First Aid is a skills-based training course, teaching participants
about mental health and substance-use issues. “This course is a great tool to
bring awareness to mental health and lower the stigma associated with mental
health disorders,” said LT Ishaq.

In the Mental Health First Aid course, participants learn risk factors and warning signs for mental
health and addiction concerns, strategies for how to help someone in both crisis and non-crisis situa-
tions, and where to turn for help. Those who take the course learn how to apply the Mental Health
First Aid action plan in a variety of situations, including when someone is experiencing panic attacks,
suicidal thoughts or behaviors, non-suicidal self-injury, acute psychosis (e.g., hallucinations or delu-
sions), overdose or withdrawal from alcohol or drug use, and reaction to a traumatic event.

Mood disorders affect one in 10 adults in the United States each year. Depression is the most com-
mon, impacting 6.8 percent of adults in any one year. Of these adults, 57 percent receive the profes-
sional mental health care or other services they need. This means someone around you may be
dealing with depression and not getting proper
support. The Mental Health First Aid course is an
opportunity to practice—through role plays, sce-
narios, and activities—to make it easier to apply
the skills learned in a real-life situation.

To enroll in an upcoming Mental Health First Aid
course, contact Afton Luttrell at Af-
[email protected] or LT Zohaib Ishaq at Zo-
[email protected]

How to Correctly Wear Glasses

There is a right way and a wrong way to wearing glasses
correctly. Follow this easy-to-use guide provided by
CSU’s Optometry Department to successfully wear
glasses correctly.

Put glasses on carefully. To put glasses on, grip the
front of the frame with both hands. Slide the arms of the
glasses over your ears and lower the frame gently onto
your nose. Always handle your glasses with two hands to reduce strain on the hinges.

Don’t push glasses into your nose. Too much pressure may cause a lasting indentation to
form on the bridge of your nose.

Wear your glasses close to your eyes, not on the tip of our nose or halfway down the bridge.
This position gives you the most visibility. It may feel uncomfortable at first, but this discomfort may
be overcome in time.

Wear glasses on the top of your nose. When you have your glasses on, touch the nose-bridge
with your forefinger and push it up so the frames sit comfortable on top of your nose. Unless your
optician has specifically instructed you to wear your glasses in another position, your glasses should
sit comfortably between your eyes at the apex of your forehead.

Don’t stretch your glasses out. Make sure you don’t rest your glasses on top of your head as it
can stretch out the shape.

Keep the lenses clean. Wipe glasses with a microfiber cloth and use a bit of water to remove
persistent stains. Regularly clean the frames with mild soap and water to remove any oil or dirt.
Avoid wiping glasses with clothing. This may leave hard stains and patterns that are hard to wipe off.

Avoid touching lenses with fingers. Fingerprints may smudge glasses with bacteria. Lenses
have an optical center intended to be aligned with a person’s line of sight when looking straight
ahead. If frames aren’t fitted properly, or the lenses were put in the frame incorrectly, an induced
prism may occur, which can be very uncomfortable.

If you play sports, think about getting a pair of sports glasses. If you are very active, look for
a strap to hold your glasses up.

PHS Athletics Accomplishment

CDR Daniel Molina, physician at Clinton Indian Health Center, is
an elite triathlete who competes in one of the world’s most chal-
lenging one-day sporting events in the world, Ironman. This
event consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bicycle ride, and fin-
ishing up with a 26.22 mile (marathon) run. CDR Molina has
completed eight full distance Ironman races and several half dis-
tance Ironman's. This year he plans to complete four Ironman
races with the ultimate goal to race at the Ironman World Cham-
pionships. “To those considering training and competing in an
Ironman do it,” said CDR Molina. “Don’t be overwhelmed. This is
a process. Many of us have endured long periods of training in
education or otherwise. To someone on the sidelines it may appear as an impossible journey, but it’s
all perspective. Ironman is about consistency, commitment, and a little bit of courage. As with all
journeys, it starts with a first step and is much easier if you can find a mentor to provide invaluable
knowledge along the way.”
