It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Navajo Nation Special Diabetes Project website. We hope you enjoy your visit and learn how our hard-working staff has made a difference in the lives of the Navajo people.
We have eight Service Areas located throughout the Navajo Nation with the Central Administration located in Window Rock, Arizona. You can visit the Service Area by clicking on the link above or other links for your information. The Service Areas work with local governmental entities of the Navajo Nation known as Chapters. Each community is affiliated with a Chapter where decisions are made for the benefit of the people whether it has to do with local-grazing issues or health related concerns.
The objectives of the Navajo Nation Special Diabetes Project are to provide prevention education to reduce new cases among the Navajo people; to identify individuals who are in pre-diabetes stage to reduce new developments; and provide diabetes management to reduce complications and disabilities. These objectives are being met by healthy lifestyle promotions, improvement in nutrition and diet, and exercise on a daily basis by our staff as they go out into the community.
We have been able to bring Wellness Centers to some communities and we are happy with the positive changes daily work-outs have brought to the lives of many clients with or without diabetes. This is a fight that must be fought in every home, every community, and by each individual. “The Ultimate Choice to Healthy Living Begins with You."
