Tackling Diabetes in the Latino Community

Tackling Diabetes in the Latino Community

Around 6% of Americans have diabetes, but for Latinos it's double that, around 12 to 13%.

And that's why more than 30 Valley organizations gathered at Shadow Hills High School in Indio Saturday, to help combat the growing diabetes epidemic in the Latino community.

The free event included several lectures, music, food and of course some valuable information about diabetes.

Residents from all over the Valley turned out, and there was even representatives from all three Valley hospitals at the event.
