Great Plains Good Health & Wellness Program

Established in 2014, GPTLHB’s Great Plains Good Health and Wellness (GPGHW) program, has used evidence-informed, culturally rooted health promotion and disease prevention initiatives to help Great Plains area tribes combat high rates of obesity, commercial tobacco use, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Funding for the Great Plains Good Health & Wellness Program is specifically provided through a cooperative agreement from the CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP).
