The secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is in Oklahoma to meet with members of the Pawnee and Cherokee Nations.

Secretary Tom Price began a three-day visit Tuesday as part of the federal agency's integral relationship with tribal governments.

Price plans to meet with tribal leaders and tour health facilities and human service sites in Tahlequah that offer programs tailored to the needs of tribal nations and people. 

Price says he will emphasize the government's commitment for tribal nations to secure access to high quality health care and human services and will discuss some of the nation's leading public health challenges, including opioid addiction.
