Tribal Health and Resilience in Vulnerable Environments (THRIVE)
The Tribal Health and Resilience in Vulnerable Environments (THRIVE) project was implemented between 2013 and 2018 in partnership with Chickasaw Nation and Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and was the first healthy retail intervention study implemented in tribally-owned and operated convenience stores.
This project aimed to increase vegetable and fruit intake among Native Americans by addressing the availability, variety, promotion, placement and pricing of healthier foods in the retail environment.
