To help achieve our vision of a healthier Yamassee Nation, the Wellness Strategy focuses on increasing physical activity, promoting good nutrition and healthy eating and fostering mental health and resiliency.

It is our aim to reestablish centers that nationals can not just come to get treatment for their health problems but also to learn how those health problems originate. Diet and nutrition along with exercise is well known to be the foundation of good health. It’s our aim to encourage the better understanding of the importance of a good diet along with any health treatments that will be required to ease ailments.
