What is the Native American Diabetes Project?

The Native American Diabetes Project's goal is to help people eat healthy foods and increase exercise. This is done by working together with Native American communities. Ideas from the communities are used to make a program that is specifically designed for Rio Grande Pueblo people.

The Native American Diabetes Project was started to help people be strong in body and spirit. The Project has been supported by the National Institutes of Health DK 9217, the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Albuquerque, NM, the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, and a generous grant from the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation.
