Rae O’Leary is a research nurse for Missouri Breaks and is passionate about anything related to public health, especially when it comes to Native youth, so she says it has been an honor to be involved with CTC. She has worked with Cheyenne River youth for several years through her role with the Canli (tobacco) Coalition. The youth volunteers helped in the advocacy efforts that made Cheyenne River smoke-free in all indoor public places! She knows there are so many great people and groups leading positive youth development efforts and events on Cheyenne River. Rae is excited about CTC's potential to support the existing efforts and expand into new areas that meet the specific needs of our youth.
