Accomplishing Socioeconomic Goals May Build Confidence, Improve Health of Native American Families

RISEGrant_EagleButteSD_2016_032.jpg

Health disparities research typically controls for socioeconomic status in analyses, but the We RISE study looks at changing those socioeconomic variables. The six-month intervention targets young Native American mothers willing to work toward an income-related or education goal using community resources and support. Once the women have achieved one goal, the hope is that they gain the skills and confidence to ask themselves, “What other potential do I have that I have not yet uncovered?”
