Healthy Living in Two Worlds

native art.

This project collected baseline data from urban Native American youth and a subset of their caregivers on the health behaviors of these youth. In particular, the project gathered data on their dietary practices, physical activities and recreational tobacco use. This information was used to develop a culturally grounded wellness curriculum for urban Native American youth ages 9-13. This curriculum was implemented in the summer of 2006 through a five week summer day camp.
