Fertile Ground II: Growing the Seeds of Native American Health

Native Americans face among the highest rates of childhood obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other chronic diseases in the United States. Without a dramatic and sustained investment in shifting these health trends, the future health and well-being of Native communities and tribal nations are in jeopardy. “Fertile Ground II” seeks to explore Native-led advocacy and policy changes that can help address this health crisis.

To address the food crisis in Indian Country, we must come together to call for change at the foundational, tribal, and federal levels to improve access to healthy, affordable foods for these communities.
