Antonia Gonzales's Work

Antonia Gonzales and Sarah Gustavus traveled to the Navajo Nation recently to examine how a lack of access to water in many homes influences beverage choices and what might be done to increase water consumption among young people.
Native organizations and advocates across the United States are seeking to get young Native people to switch from drinking sugary beverages, such as soda and energy drinks, to water.
Navajo comedian, motivational speaker and advocate Pax Harvey is among advocates addressing health and wellness in tribal communities at a grassroots level.
