For Henry Sun Eagle, the Indian Health Summit in Denver during early July gave him a chance to share ideas and learn from more than 1,500 other American Indian health officials and tribal leaders from around the nation.

As special programs coordinator for the Southern Ute Shining Mountain Diabetes program in Ignacio, Colo., Sun Eagle says he received some new concepts to use within his program, which helps Southern Ute diabetics.
