Eastern Shoshone Get Health Care Grant

Feb 4, 2014

The Eastern Shoshone Tribe has received over 200 thousand dollars to help fight heart disease.  The Tribe’s Director of Health Programs Cathy Keene says the money from the AstraZeneca Foundation is allowing them to address a problem that kills half the members of the Wind River Reservation.  Keene says they have developed a cardiovascular health education program that will hopefully help prevent heart disease.
