Health equity is of the utmost importance to the tribes Idaho, Oregon and Washington. For many years American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) have experienced health disparities that have increased morbidity and mortality from various diseases, and reduced quality and longevity of life. Of particular importance in the Northwest are heart disease, diabetes, and those factors which contribute to individual risk of these diseases. Both AI/AN and whites share the same top two causes of death: Heart disease and cancer. Approximately 12 % of AI/AN in the NW have been diagnosed with diabetes. This application, for component two, aims to address the high rates of disease, injury and premature death caused by obesity, commercial tobacco use, and chronic disease by using culturally relevant and community-based approaches. We propose three aims to meet the objectives of this application. First, to provide leadership, coordination and technical assistance to the 43 federally recognized American Indian tribes in the Portland Area. Second, to provide training and technical assistance to the 43 federally recognized American Indian tribes on best and promising practices to address heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Finally, we intend to provide resources to tribes to assist in implementation of strategies to address factors contributing to chronic disease. The intended impact of the WEAVE-NW project is to improve quality of life by; increase consumption of health promoting and traditional foods, increase physical activity, increase rates and duration of breastfeeding, reduce prevalence of commercial tobacco using, including e-cigarettes, and reduce the incidence of Type 2 diabetes, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia.
