Did you know...
DIABETES: Unknown in Lakota people 100 years ago.
Today, it is a leading cause of death, kidney failure, heart disease, blindness, amputations, and deafness.
WHAT CHANGED? 2 very big things changed:
> What we eat— Our food today is high in sugars and fat
> Physical Activity— We are less active than ever before
Diabetes prevention means changing these things TODAY so that we can head off diabetes down the road.
The RST Diabetes Prevention Program is committed to assist the people of the Rosebud Sioux Sicangu Nation in making these changes for a new generation of health and wellness!
