The Committee on Native American Child Health (CONACH) of the American Academy of Pediatrics develops policies and programs that improve the health of Native American children. The CONACH members are committed to increasing awareness of the major health problems facing Native American children, and monitoring legislation affecting Native American child health. The CONACH also conducts pediatric consultation visits to Indian Health Service (IHS) and tribal health facilities, and works to strengthen ties with tribes throughout the United States.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: Diabetes Public Health Resource: The Eagle’s Nest
The Eagle Books are a series of four children’s books for Native American children and others interested in healthy living. The books promote type 2 diabetes prevention and encourage a return to traditional ways, including physical activity and healthy eating. The series was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT), in collaboration with the Tribal Leaders Diabetes Committee and the Indian Health Service, in response to the burden of diabetes among Native Americans and the lack of diabetes prevention materials for children.
