Working Together to Build and Strengthen Healthy Families and Communities
The Health Promotion Program continues to play a vital role in helping people stay healthy. The goals of the HP Program include facilitating healthy changes at the individual, family, organizational, community and policy levels. Conditions and behaviors related to health are a primary focus. Approaches used include direct provision of preventive services, health education, collaboration, community capacity building and social marketing. Community programs are aerobic classes, Walking Strong programs, Spring N2 Summer, Just Move It!, Comprehensive School Health, health fairs, and Adventure Based Learning Workshops.
This program uses a cultural and curricular strategy which is developmentally appropriate to the target population. The underlying theme for the program is "Abstinence until Marriage, through the curriculum of Sex Can Wait".
The Health Promotion/Disease Prevention (HP/DP) Department of Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation was awarded slightly over $2,000,000 over five years by the Department of Health and Human Services to participate in a demonstration project in the area of primary prevention of diabetes.
It is estimated that the grant will impact the lives of 450 Native Americans in the Tuba City service area. Starting in October 2005, local efforts undertaken by the Health Promotion/Disease Prevention Department will begin in screening and recruiting individuals diagnosed with pre-diabetes. Individuals diagnosed with pre-diabetes will undergo a diabetes education intervention, which is based on a group approach. Each Tuba City chapter will have available to their community sixteen-week group education sessions providing information on nutrition, physical activity, coping strategies, as well as other activities.
