Diabetes 101

Please join us in a new ISC-FNIHB opportunity to learn more about diabetes. The Diabetes 101 series will focus on giving people culturally relevant information about the types of diabetes, the impact of historical trauma, ideas for prevention and management and how to work together with people living with diabetes. This series will consist of 10, one-hour sessions.

The first session in the series looks at the big picture of diabetes. Participants will learn some basic information about diabetes and its complications. People will also be introduced to the rest of the Diabetes 101 series. 

Learning outcomes:

  1. Understand what diabetes and prediabetes are
  2. Understand the risk factors for diabetes
  3. Understand the basic prevention and management strategies for diabetes and its complications
  4. Know where you can get help
