Journal Club 9: Traditional Food Practices, Attitudes, and Beliefs in Urban Alaska Native Women Receiving WIC Assistance

Recorded 4/22/2019

About the Webinar

Anchorage Alaska is home to more than half of the state's population and to the majority of Alaska Native peoples. Traditional foods play a large role in the lives of many Alaska Native peoples, both in urban and rural locations. Current intake of traditional foods (TFs) in the largest city in Alaska, and particularly with Alaska Native women, is unknown. The presentation will discuss the intake of these foods and determine how practices, attitudes, and beliefs around traditional foods are associated with intake of traditional foods.
