PHOENIX – University of Arizona medical school professor Yvette Roubideaux is the new director of the Indian Health Service.

The White House says the U.S. Senate unanimously confirmed Roubideaux’s nomination Wednesday night.

Roubideaux, a member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe, was an assistant professor in the Department of Family & Community Medicine at UA’s College of Medicine when she was picked by President Obama to head the IHS.

The White House says she has conducted extensive research on American Indian health issues, with a focus on diabetes and Indian health policy.

The IHS provides health care to American Indians.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
