Format             Health Promotion Program

 

HPP was established at the University of Oklahoma to meet the growing needs in health promotion and wellness for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) people, as well as Native Hawaiian, and First Nations people. Annually, HPP conducts AI/AN wellness conferences which include Wellness & Native Men, Wellness & Native Women, Wellness & Spirituality, and Native Women & Men’s Wellness Conferences. HPP also conducts an AI/AN Diabetes Prevention Conference, which offers the Native Fitness Training, an innovative health promotion program designed to train individuals to become community fitness leaders and instructors. Upon completing this three-day intensive training, participants are prepared to implement and instruct aerobic exercise classes in their AI/AN communities. A training manual has been developed through a collaboration of AI/AN and non- AI/AN health professionals. This training has been adapted to target those working with people with special needs due to disabilities and/or chronic disease.
