Body Mass Index

 

Body Mass Index (BMI)
BMI is one common method used to measure overweight and obesity. The BMI chart (Table 2) shows the range of healthy and unhealthy weights for different heights. To use the BMI chart, find your height on the side. Then locate your weight group. At the bottom of the chart you will find your BMI.
 
Less than 18.5 is considered underweight and poses some health risks.
18.5 - 24.9 ­ a healthy weight
25 - 29.9 ­ overweight
Over 30 ­ obese

BMI may not be an accurate indicator for athletes, the elderly, children, or people less than 5 feet tall.

Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan

The Cherokee Nation Comprehensive Cancer Control (CNCCC) Project assists in the development of networks and collaboration that produce an infrastructure for a comprehensive approach to cancer within the Cherokee Nation. Since 2003, coalition members and partners have come together to discuss the burden of cancer in Cherokee Nation. Coalition members and partners include local, regional, state and national representatives committed to identifying areas of cancer concern, planning interventions, prioritizing greatest areas of identified need, and then implementing identified strategies and/or providing needed resources. This is the second edition of the Cherokee Nation Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan and will serve, like the first, as an information resource for health care professionals and community members, as well as a tool for the Cherokee Nation Comprehensive Cancer Control Coalition and its respective entities. The coalition is committed to the process of enhancing infrastructure for comprehensive cancer control in the Cherokee Nation with the ultimate goal of reducing morbidity and mortality among the Cherokee community.
