Culture is Prevention
Culture as Prevention means to choose wellness by learning and practicing a cultural activity. When we practice our traditions and ceremonies we reduce engagement in non-healthy choices. In practicing culture we also heal ourselves and become good teachers for all the generations of elders in training.
