Upcoming Webinars

Growing the Next Generation of Healthy Youth.

Join us!  Tribal Youth Wellness – Nourished Minds and Healthy Bodies

  • FREE webinar training
  • Date: January 30th from 11AM-12PM
  • Presented by Tara Stiller

Growing the Next Generation of Healthy Youth will discuss ways to integrate traditional and modern-day knowledge of nutrition and physical activity to decrease obesity and chronic disease among Alaska Native families.  The host of this webinar is Tara Christiansen-Stiller, Alutiiq/Aleut (MPH), her families are from King Cove and Old Harbor Alaska.  It is her passion is to empower communities to support the health and wellness of youth through the teaching of the ways of life both before (like our ancestors) and today (in the modern world). 

The younger generations of Alaska Natives are losing knowledge of traditional practices of a healthy way of living and gradually relying more on high-energy foods and a sedentary lifestyle that is contributing to an increase in overweight and obesity.  Communities can foster a social/cultural environment that will promote positive changes in knowledge, cultural identity, and encourage healthful eating and physical activity among youth.
