  • Description:
    The Standing Tall for 40 Years image celebrates the extraordinary contributions of Community Health Representatives (CHRs) serving tribal communities. The Indian Health Service CHR Program was established in 1968 to bridge cultural, language, and system gaps between people and health resources. Decades later, CHRs continue to "stand" for their people, providing social, spiritual and physical support, teaching about healthy traditional foods, the importance of being physically active, and helping people to live well with diabetes and to prevent type 2 diabetes in their communities.
