 A call to Action

 Over the past three decades, childhood obesity rates in America have tripled. Today, nearly one in three children in our nation

is obese or overweight. This issue is even more severe in Indian Country as a study of four-year-olds found that obesity is two

times more common among American Indian/ Alaska Native children than any other racial or ethnic group studied.

One-third of all children born in 2000 or later will suffer from diabetes at some point in their lives. Many others will face chronic

obesity-related health problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer and asthma. In 2002, more than 100,000

American Indians and Alaska Native adults, or nearly 15% of those receiving care from the Indian Health Service (IHS), were

estimated to have diabetes.  Become a Let's Move! in Indian Country Community
