Youth Health Literacy Project (#YHLP) On Diabetes Awareness

Generation Justice

Sun. 12/8 7p: Generation Justice presents a show from the Youth Health Literacy Project (#YHLP) on diabetes awareness. The show features powerful personal and community stories about the impact of diabetes. Diabetes affects the lives of those who have it, but also family members and friends. Youth from San Felipe Pueblo and Generation Justice Fellow Pauly Denetclaw will share their stories.

Over 25 million Americans have diabetes, and it is estimated that 79 million adults aged 20 and older have pre-diabetes. Total healthcare and related costs run about $174 billion annually.
