Our African American Initiatives are a targeted approach to increasing the awareness of the seriousness of diabetes and emphasizing the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices such as moving more and eating healthier.
Culturally Appropriate Materials
African American Initiatives develop culturally appropriate materials and community-based activities that empower, educate and create measurable differences in the prevalence of diabetes and its complications among people of African descent. The vision of the initiative is a healthier community living free from diabetes and it's complications.
The target audience is all people of African descent living in the United States whether they identify themselves as being African American, Black, African, or from the Caribbean.
Workshops and Events
Community-based educational programs/workshops are an important part of the African American Initiatives.
Through fun and informative workshops conducted by trained Association staff and volunteers, community members can learn more about diabetes, the importance of making healthy food choices, and being physically active on a regular basis.
Materials and events targeting the African American community are also an integral part of the Association's outreach efforts to help improve the quality of life for African Americans and their families.
