That’s why we are actively seeking Native American doctors, nurses, pharmacists and other allied health practitioners to help us achieve our mission of providing high-quality care to our nation’s Veterans. By incorporating their proud heritage with medicine, Native American health care professionals can make a positive impact not only on the lives of Native American Veterans but all Veterans.
