Men and Diabetes

Historically, men have not been comfortable discussing issues about their health, particularly conditions like diabetes, depression, nutrition and fitness.  This has resulted in shorter and less healthy lives for men in the United States compared to women.  We encourage all men with or without diabetes to take the "modern man" challenge:  get out, get active, get informed!   For more informatiom on men's health, diabetes and other nuturitional information, please contact the Absentee Shawnee Tribe Wellness & Diabetes Department at (405)701-7977.  *This is a message from the American Diabetes Association, and the AST Wellness & Diabetes Department.*
