Health Wellness Case Study.. Successfully Impacting the Obesity Crisis.. The problem of obesity is widespread among the Native American population..

Using our Health and Wellness model, we added Adventure components to the curriculum.. As a result of the class, students reported that they ate more healthfully, walked almost everywhere, and, most importantly, were learning to help one another..
