About Us

YOU MAY ONLY EDIT WHAT IS SEEN BETWEEN THE RED LINES. IF YOU ACCIDENTALLY DELETE ONE OF THE RED LINES (OR SOMETHING OUTSIDE OF THEM), PLEASE CANCEL YOUR CHANGES AND TRY AGAIN.

------------------------------

To tackle the burden of obesity, the Cherokee Nation is developing local media strategies to promote healthy food and beverage choices; limiting unhealthy food and beverage availability in schools; implementing farm-to-school programs; adopt quality physical education in schools; increasing safe, attractive, and accessible places for physical activity; adopting procurement and purchasing policies to reduce the price of healthy foods; developing prompts for healthy food and beverage items and implementing menu labeling; reducing the cost of recreation services; and expanding activity groups in workplaces, community gathering places, parks, and neighborhoods.

The Cherokee Nation is addressing the burden of tobacco use by implementing 24/7 tobacco-free policies in various sectors of the community; developing product placement guidelines for Cherokee Nation businesses and a voluntary product placement program for other merchants not operated by the Cherokee Nation; supporting the elimination of free samples of tobacco and price discounts at Cherokee Nation businesses and events; and increasing access to cessation services for students and for patients of Cherokee Nation Health Services and area Indian Health Services.
