Native American Diabetes Project
American Indian and Alaska Native people experience disproportionate rates of diabetes as well as poorer diabetes outcomes. USC is addressing this problem in Los Angeles through a community-partnered diabetes research study funded by Project Angel Food and in collaboration with United American Indian Involvement, Inc., and other Native organizations.
This pilot study aims to reach up to 312 Urban Indians with diabetes to participate in an intervention that includes 12 weeks of medically tailored meals, four weeks of virtual diabetes wellness classes, and social support. The study team collects survey and lab data from participants over a six-month time frame to see how the intervention is working.
