Let’s Move! in Indian Country

SDPI Grantee Webinar Series: Sharing Youth and Family Best Practices

Let's Move! in Indian CountryLet’s Move! in Indian Country (LMIC) is a part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative. Let's Move! is “dedicated to solving the problem of obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams.”

LMIC seeks to advance and support the work that Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) grantees, Tribal health programs, community members, and organizations are already doing to address childhood obesity and improve the health of Native youth.

Throughout our history, Native communities have provided some of the best examples of healthy food and sustainable community-based practices. To highlight some of these examples, LMIC webinars will be held monthly to feature SDPI grantees and their best practices in addressing youth and family health.
