    about Pacific Islander Health

Pacific Islanders (PI) have the highest rates in both obesity and infant mortality in Utah. Some cultural, social traditions, beliefs and bi-cultural living have been barriers to healthy lifestyles for many. NTAS Health Committee seek to help implement diabetes, heart disease, mental health classes and increase physical activities among PI families. Health Committee will increase classes, support groups and increase physical activities that will decrease health disparities among Pacific Islanders.
