Youth Speaks Against Diabetes

December 5, 2013

San Francisco poets from youthspeaks.org have teamed up with the University of California San Francisco to train young poets on how living conditions common in poorer neighborhood, such as unsafe streets, few green spaces, and a preponderance of fast food joints are a factor in the development of diabetes.

Videos have been created and are part of a package available at:'Youth Speaks' Against Diabetes.

Dean Schillinger MD, U. of California-San Francisco, California Diabetes Program, and veteran health literacy researcher, helped mentor this project.
