The Health Is Life in Balance Diabetes Education in Tribal Schools K–12 curriculum (search “DETS”) offers culturally relevant and scientifically based teachings in three sections: Grades K-4, 5-8, 9-12.

National Institutes of Health developed the curriculum in collaboration with eight tribal colleges and universities, the CDC Native Diabetes Wellness Program, and the Indian Health Service’s Division of Diabetes Treatment and Prevention.
