For 20 years, he worked with the U.S. Public Health Service on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and other Native American reservations in South Dakota. His primary efforts were to teach healthy lifestyles and prevent type 2 diabetes, heart disease and other causes of premature death for these groups at higher risk.

Each year, the AAP Committee on Native American Child Health presents the Native American Child Health Advocacy Award to recognize an individual who has made a major contribution to Native American child health.
