Sanford Bemidji hosts inaugural ‘Native Americans with Stethoscopes Camp’

Given Bemidji’s location among the three largest tribal nations in Minnesota, addressing an ongoing disparity of Native Americans in the health sector proved pertinent to Casey Dorr, an investigator at Hennepin Healthcare Research Institute in Minneapolis and a Mille Lacs Band member.

Having been born at Sanford Bemidji, Dorr’s presence on Saturday was a seamless segue to his old stomping grounds and an opportunity to bring Hennepin Healthcare’s event to the Northwoods.
