The Friends of Hubbell
National Historic Site Welcomes You!

Brittany Jim Brittany Jim is among the first recipients of our $3,000 FOH Graduate Studies Scholarships. She is currently studying in the Master of Public Health Nutrition Program at Northern Arizona University. Previously, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science-Physiology from Fort Lewis College and is presently working for a Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Program where she is focusing on patients battling various stages of diabetes and other metabolic health conditions that branch off from this disease. “In my present position, I coordinate large community fitness events for my people, and I see the physical struggles these people face on a daily basic because of unhealthy nutritional choices and sedentary lifestyles,” Brittany said. “They have insulin resistance, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, fatty liver, and low self-esteem.

I made the decision to apply to the MPH-Nutrition Program at NAU because this will give me the education I need to better help Native people in need of nutritional healing. Upon completion of my studies, I plan to work with an Indian Health Service hospital as a Registered Dietician to work with children, adults and elderly of my community in a private health care setting. I believe many of our Native people today are in a constant battle with their health and specifically with food,” she added. “I thank the Friends of Hubbell for this scholarship that helps to create this great opportunity for me and our Native people.”
