News From Indian Country

It seemed like a simple enough question, “Dr. Vainio, can you tell the story of how you became a doctor?” I thought that would be a relatively straightforward story, but it isn’t. Like anything else, this is bits and pieces and twists and turns and dead ends and parts of it aren’t even my story. The hope was this would be an inspirational story to be able to show kids and anyone else hoping to go down this path.

My heart is full because the Wolf hunts in the Great Lakes regions have been stopped by a federal judge.
