Eagle Adventure Program
Chokma! Hello & Welcome to the Eagle Adventure Website! PDF Print E-mail


The Eagle Adventure program strives to improve the health and nutrition of youth who are increasingly at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Using the CDC’s popular Eagle Books as a central theme and embracing traditions of Native American storytelling we aim to provide youth and their families with a vision of hope that diabetes can be prevented through dietary and physical activity changes.

Recognized as the 2012 Dr. Rodney L. Huey Memorial Champion of Health, the program has been presented at national conferences and agencies. Tribes across the nation have requested program information as a means of education to prevent type 2 diabetes. More than 3,000 Oklahoma students have participated in the Eagle Adventure program since launching in February 2010.

Developed through a collaboration between the Chickasaw Nation Nutrition Services Get Fresh! Program and the Oklahoma State University Department of Nutritional Sciences, the Eagle Adventure program is funded through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education.

The Eagle Adventure was developed through a collaboration with the Oklahoma State University Department of Nutritional Sciences and the Chickasaw Nation Nutrition Services Get Fresh!
