"If You Knew the Conditions:" A Chronicle of the Indian Medical Service and American Indian Health Care, 1908-1955

"If You Knew the Conditions" examines the inadequacies of the healthcare provided to American Indians by the Indian Medical Service. DeJong argues that, while Congress and the Indian Service had a responsibility to provide meaningful and relevant medical services to American Indians, parsimonious appropriations and indifference to American Indian conceptions of well-being limited the effectiveness of Indian medical services.
