The purpose of the 2015 Seeds of Native Health Capacity Building Grant is to better understand the root causes of childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes through:
1) Community Health Assessments (new or ongoing) focused on healthy nutrition and healthy food access, built environment, physical activity and/or socio-economic demographics (i.e. focus groups, literature reviews, mapping, surveying, etc.).
2) Community Planning and Capacity Building focused on healthy nutrition and healthy food access, built environment, physical activity and/or socio-economic demographics (i.e. host stakeholder convenings, coalition building and collaboration efforts).
As a deliverable of this grant, grant recipients will create an action plan based on their work that will focus on long-term planning. Specifically, the action plan will identify strategies and recommendations to address childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes in their communities.
