Dear Editor,

I'd like to give you some information you might find useful for The News From Indian Country readers pertaining to American Indians and Alaska Native youth.

Diabetes, one of the leading causes of death and disability, is occurring at increasing rates among American Indian and Alaska Native youth. It is important for adolescents to know that diabetes can be prevented!

The National Diabetes Education Program's (NDEP) American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) Work Group has developed a tool kit for promoting physical activity among AI/AN youth. The Move It! And Reduce Your Risk of Diabetes took kit includes many helpful items for your project.
