Diabetes Education in Tribal Schools: Health Is Life in Balance


The Diabetes Education in Tribal Schools K–12 Curriculum (DETS) offers culturally- relevant and scientifically-based lessons that promote awareness about diabetes and lifestyle adaptations that can help prevent type 2 diabetes. The lessons encourage understanding of health, diabetes, science, community knowledge, life in balance, and health professions among Native American students. The K–4 DETS lessons include a set of the Eagle Books and animated DVD. Development was led by the National Institutes of Health in collaboration with eight tribal colleges and universities, the CDC’s Native Diabetes Wellness Program, and the Indian Health Services’(IHS) Division of Diabetes Treatment and Prevention.

For information regarding the DETS program, please contact the National Institutes of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK).
