A few weeks ago, I had mentioned in this blog post that I had joined the Por Tu Familia project to help fight Diabetes and raise awareness in our communities. Just two days ago, I found out that my Dr. has classified me as having "Pre-Diabetes". I started working on this project because of what it had done to my family and more specifically my father. I never thought that I would find myself on this side of the fence…but here I am. One of the biggest misconceptions is that you cannot eat "Latino Food" and eat healthy at the same time. Por Tu Familia disagrees with that so they created
Por Tu Familia Adult Prevention Toolkit
We are excited about the opportunity to offer you the Por Tu Familia Adult Prevention Toolkit sponsored by the Abbott Fund which includes some popular Por Tu Familia materials. This toolkit was designed for organizations to help us increase the reach of our efforts to improve the quality of life for Hispanics/Latinos with diabetes and those at risk of developing the disease. Only through dedication and collaboration will there be success in stopping this epidemic.
The kit contains the following:
- 25 Latin Flavor in the Kitchen Recipe Samplers
- 25 Por Tu Familia Brochures
- 25 Healthy Lifestyle bilingual tip-sheets
- 2 Por Tu Familia posters (1 in English and 1 in Spanish)
To order a free copy of this kit for your organization, please call our National Call Center at 1-800-DIABETES (342-2383).
