Millions of people in the world live with diabetes every day. Just on the Wind River Indian Reservation alone, 12% of the 12,500 residents have diabetes. 1 in 3 American adults have pre-diabetes. Diabetes is not yet a curable disease, but it is very treatable. No matter how frightening and frustrating it can be, people with diabetes can live long, healthy, and happy lives.
With offices in each of Wyoming’s 23 counties and the Wind River Indian Reservation, University of Wyoming Extension is a leader in outreach education. They are reaching out to help people with diabetes eat better and feel better.
