Current Research: The purpose of this research is to identify, study, and develop treatment protocols for obesity in children and adolescents in SD. This will be accomplished by providing health education to children, teens, and their families in an effort to prevent diabetes and heart disease in their future. Health education will include information about and opportunities to try healthy foods, activities to improve self-esteem, and participatory physical education. In addition, this research will provide opportunities to observe and learn from communities working to improve healthcare issues.
