Health disparities between Native Americans and other Oklahomans will be a key issue at the Seventh Generation Conference, April 14-16 in Midwest City. Cosponsored by AARP Oklahoma, the conference takes its name from the Native American tradition of considering seven generations of descendants when making decisions.

Oklahoma is home to about 346,500 Native Americans, who are at higher risk than Caucasians for diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol. Conference participants will discuss access to health care under the Affordable Care Act.

In addition, AARP will host a healthy cooking demonstration and share information about the sixth annual AARP Oklahoma Indian Elder Honors program.
