AUDIO: Sanford Health’s Rebekah Fineday discusses Native American Heritage Month

Sanford Bemidji’s Native American Community Advocate Rebekah Fineday recently highlighted some history and current events when it comes to healthcare in northern Minnesota as part of Native American Heritage Month.

Fineday discussed many of the barriers to healthcare for people of color, especially those Indigenous to these lands, but highlighted some encouraging trends, such as more people of color entering the workforce in healthcare fields.

Sanford Health has some events planned later this month to expose more Sanford employees to Anishinaabe culture, said Fineday.
