According to the Minnesota Department of Health prevalence of obesity is 50% higher among African Americans than Whites. Diabetes among the African American population in St. Paul has always been much higher than other populations groups, with the exception of American Indians. As a result OCHC has an internist, ophthalmologist, and podiatrist on staff. OCHC has participated in the national Diabetes Collaborative for over 12 years and has been offering diabetes classes and support groups for that long as well. Healthy eating and exercise have always been part of the regimen for diabetes programs offered at OCHC.

Topics Include

  • Healthy meal planning
  • Managing your medication
  • Exercise
  • What diabetes means to you
