Community Garden in Emmonak funded through the Community Activity & Garden Awards.

In response to the diabetes epidemic among American Indians and Alaska Natives, Congress established the Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) grant programs in 1997. YKHC has been a part of this program from the beginning and has been working to slow both the spread and progression of diabetes in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta.

The YKHC Diabetes Prevention & Control Program is currently inviting all communities in the YK Delta to apply for the 2018 Community Activity & Garden Awards. We are encouraging city and tribal governments 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 opportunities for people living in our communities.
