Our amazing team of intergenerational committed leaders and volunteers turn our concerns into actions to help our people, focusing on making the maximum positive effort for our communities with a momentum that helps us affect healthy change.
We are a voice for our Diné communities: DCAA formed in 2012 as a response to the high rates of obesity, diabetes, and the complications of these health issues among children, youth, families, adults, and elders living in the Navajo communities.
DCAA is comprised of grassroots level community health advocates from various communities to raise awareness, inform, educate, and mobilize community members to combat obesity, diabetes, and other chronic health issues.
Your contribution will make a difference and will further support our grassroots efforts as well as supporting our volunteer community advocates and their families at this time.
