The second part of my occasional series on health disparities affecting Native Americans in the Portland, Ore., area ran in today's Sunday Oregonian.

Hunt Fund for Health Journalism administered by the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowships, a program of the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communiication & Journalism.
