Over the past few decades many of our Native people living in the YK Delta have become less physically active, are eating less Native food, and have been developing more chronic health diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, cancers and obesity.

YKHC’s Diabetes Prevention & Control Program is currently inviting all communities in the YK Delta to apply for our 2015 Community Activity and Garden Award fundsWe are encouraging city and tribal government and other non-profit agencies to partner with us to develop long-term activity programs that will help prevent diabetes and other chronic health diseases by increasing healthy lifestyle choices for people living in our rural communities.
