Area of Science: Medicine and Health

Project Title: Type 2 Calamity



Type 2 diabetes mellitus affects over 15 million people around the age of forty and occurs in obese people. Obesity is a problem that leads to diabetes, affecting many people from our reservation.

We would like to see reduced numbers of people with diabetes by informing them of the precautions that should be taken in order to protect themselves. We will get together with mentors, nurses, researchers and also look for sources on the internet.

We hope to gain better information in an attempt to change people's views about eating right, exercising and maintaining a healthy weight.
