DiabetesSetting high goals and low blood sugar levels
The ANTHC Diabetes program works to reduce the instances of diabetes and health complications from the disease among Alaska Native people.
Diabetes affects the health of our Alaska Native people at a greater rate than the general population. We are a multidisciplinary team of
diabetes content experts who work in partnership with the Alaska Tribal Health System to serve as a premier resource for diabetes care,
prevention and surveillance.
