  • Description:
    The Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska implemented interventions to promote the health of their people, focusing on community-selected and culturally adapted policies, systems, and environmental (PSE) improvements to reduce the prevalence of obesity and type 2 diabetes. The interventions were implemented as part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) 2014-2019 Good Health and Wellness in Indian Country program. The Winnebago Tribe used CDC's CHANGE community health assessment tool to prioritize and direct their interventions. They integrated findings from a community health assessment tool with observations from tribal working groups and implemented 6 new evidence-based PSE interventions. Their successful approaches - selected by the Winnebago community, culturally relevant, and driven by scientific assessment -demonstrate the value of flexibility in CDC grant programs.
