OKTEC Success Story: Portraits of Good Health and Wellness In Indian Country
SPTHB-TEC is proud to share the stories and impact of four Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country (GHWIC) programs located in the urban area of Tulsa, Oklahoma and rural areas of Pawhuska, Oklahoma and Anadarko, Oklahoma. The community programs highlighted are the running/walking club of the Wichita & Affiliated Tribes (Anadarko), Delaware Nation’s “Native Living” nutrition program (Anadarko), Osage Nation’s “Grow, Gather, Hunt Camp” (Pawhuska), and the “Running Strong” & “Sit Less, Move More, Learn Better” programs from the Indian Health Care Resource Center (Tulsa).
These projects utilize indigenous methods to promote healthy living and activity with positive life-style changes in their communities through policy, systems, and environmental changes.
