This year marks the 14th year for the Western Tribal Diabetes Project coordinating the Native Fitness Event. The Event is hosted at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton Oregon, and continues to be a huge success. On August 30 and 31st, 2017, participants from tribal SDPI programs across the country will converge on the Tiger Woods Center to participate in this interactive event.
The event features 20 breakout sessions: chair circuit for elders, living lean, sports speed system, mixed martial arts, fitness for kids, group fitness, natural running, power hour, and a nutrition and healthy cooking demonstration class.
Other topics on the agenda include presentations on Motivation interviewing and historical trauma in Native communities, an update from the N7 Nike program, and the Western Tribal Diabetes project data/tracking and audit issues. Most important however, is the opportunity for programs across the country to network and share successes and challenges in our SDPI programs. The evaluations from Native Fitness last year were excellent, and we are looking forward to our 2017 event.
This course introduces project management concepts and sets a baseline for understanding terminology. It provides students with techniques to effectively manage and participate in small projects. Students will learn to apply elemental basics of project management to their work and create action plans for on-the-job application.

Module 1: Conceptualizing Diabetes Data
Join the Urban Indian Health Institute’s (UIHI’s) Demystifying Data project for a webinar on “Conceptualizing Diabetes Data.” The first in a series of two training sessions focused on using health data.
This webinar will walk participants through the process of selecting your data from multiple public sources and exporting it.
An overview of other considerations when working with data such as limitations and uses of imperfect data will be included. This training is designed for individuals with a beginner level of using health data or those with a more intermediate level of understanding who want a refresher on accessing and downloading publicly available data.
