Type 2 diabetes & traditional foods -- American Indian and Alaska Native adults

Dear Colleagues:

Type 2 diabetes is a growing concern around the world. American Indian and Alaska Native adults are twice as likely to have diagnosed diabetes as non-Hispanic whites. In addition, Native American youth aged 10 to 19 years are developing type 2 diabetes at higher rates than youth in other racial and ethnic groups of this age.  Healthy eating is one part of turning the picture around for all of us but many basic nutrition units don't use traditional foods.

November is National Diabetes Month in the US
