In health, medical officials from the Cherokee Nation discussed cancer prevention and treatment at the tribe’s third bi-annual Cancer Summit March 3-5 in Tulsa’s Renaissance Hotel. The summit gathered individuals within the medical profession and those interested in cancer prevention and treatment to discuss the latest statistics and news about the disease.

In news, despite tighter budgets, the J.D. McCarty Center in Norman is moving forward with plans to build Camp ClapHans in honor of the late Sammy Jack Claphan, a Cherokee Nation citizen. Camp ClapHans will be the first summer camp of its kind in Oklahoma, McCarty Center officials said. It will have the usual summer camp activities such as swimming and horseback riding, but it will be unique in that the camp will be accessible to children 8 to 16 years old with disabilities and/or in wheelchairs.

In other news, Cherokee Nation Entertainment officials are creating approximately 100 jobs and pursuing an untapped gaming market north of Tulsa by building a casino in this small Washington County town. The $6.5 million casino will cater to the open market along Highway 75 between Tulsa and Bartlesville, a 42-mile stretch, said CNE CEO David Stewart. He added that an estimated 100 jobs would be created by the tribe’s eighth gaming facility.
