Health Promotion and Disease Prevention

“Empowering the Oneida community to achieve optimal health.”


Oneida Health Promotion is part of the National Health Promotion/Disease Prevention Program through Indian Health Services.

We participate in 3 of the 4 major strategies of the national program:

  1. Healthy Native Communities Fellowship
  2. Just Move It Partner
  3. Physical Activity Kit (PAK)


DUE TO FLOODING at the Oneida Lake, the August JMIO Beat the Heat Walk will be held at Oneida Nation Elementary School.

We received FULL-RECOGNITION as a CDC Recognized Diabetes Prevention Program. 

Class structure:
10 weekly group classes
6 bi-weekly group classes
6 monthly group classes
PLUS Wellness Coaching to support, motivate, and overcome barriers!

New DPP Sessions will begin in January, April, July, October every year:
July 11, 2019 – Thursdays 3 pm-4 pm  (FULL)
