Let's Move!

Let's Move! in Indian Country (LMIC) seeks to improve the health of American Indian and Alaska Native children, who are affected by childhood obesity at some of the highest rates in the country. Tribal governments, Urban Indian Centers, private businesses, youth leaders, and the non-profit sector are each asked to play a key role by working together to raise the next generation of healthy Native children.

LMIC seeks to acknowledge and advance the work that Tribal leadership and community members are already doing to improve the health of Native youth.
