For most of his life Maynard Revard was a fairly healthy person who made few visits to the hospital.
But sometime in 1989 that changed, when Revard hopped into his truck and drove himself to Pawhuska IHS Clinic.
“I already knew I had it when I came in. My eyes were blurry, I was real thirsty and just didn’t feel well,” Revard said. “My blood sugar was way up there and they stuck me in the hospital.”
