"We can raise awareness about this disease and make changes in ourselves and in our communities, and through this diabetes will no longer thrive." Al Cross (Mandan/Hidatsa)
"I thought about making a change in my life to be healthier. I looked at my two young sons, and I thought to myself that I wanted to be around to raise them. I made a change for them." Jimi Simmons (Muckleshoot/Grand Rhonde), with Stanford investigator Valarie Jernigan (Choctaw)
"I have a good feeling inside me. I am learning how to control my diabetes, not let my diabetes control me. My vision has improved, I have lost weight, and I am so thankful. I have a good feeling inside me now." Cheryl Marsden (Haida/Tlingit/ Tsimshean)
Healthier Living with Diabetes Workshop and Study for Native American People
Healthier Living with Diabetes is a workshop and study given over the Internet. Due to the impact of diabetes among the Native American population, Healthier Living with Diabetes was created in collaboration with Native American and other community members and health professionals. You'll see on this page some of the Native people who have participated in and led the program.
We have completed enrollment for this study.
