Health & Wellness

  Facts about Native Health Worldwide:

  • Native Americans are 2.2 times more likely to have diabetes than Caucasians. 
  • Childhood obesity is more than two times more common among Native American/Alaskan Native children (31%) than among any other racial or ethnic group studied.  
  • Native American/ Alaskan Native children ages 2-4 are the only demographic that have seen a continuing increase in obesity levels since 2003. 
 

Wellness Initiatives

The Inter Tribal Sports Wellness program aims to combat Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity epidemics in our southern California Native American communities by meeting the nutrition and hydration needs of ITS tribal youth/athletes through sports health and nutrition. In 2016, ITS plans to offer health related education activities and snacks/beverages that will increase tribal youth's knowledge and habits for nutritious foods and beverages use during and after sporting activities. In 2016, look for Rez Dogg and his wellness team at community events and game days offering sports-based health and nutrition outreach activities using technology, educational materials, visual tools, healthy snacks/beverages, and discussions. 

Community Outreach

Recently, Rez Dogg and the Wellness Team were able to collaborate with San Jacinto TANF in providing a wellness and youth engagement series. Soon after a partnership was initiated with Morongo School and a Sports day took place for grades K-9. Being out in the community and spreading knowledge about health is what Rez Dogg and his team do best! 

Rez Dogg and his wellness team can be requested for wellness community outreach events.
