Shé:kon! The Kahnawake Schools Diabetes Prevention Program (KSDPP) is committed to prevent type 2 diabetes in Kahnawake. We empower community members to care for their personal and family health through continual improvement of our unique diabetes prevention model based on Kanien’keha values. We collaborate with all community organizations on a shared vision of diabetes prevention activities that reach all community members. KSDPP continues to develop our research model based on the experiences of Kahnawakero:non, staff and researchers in a partnership between Kahnawake and universities. It is shared with other Indigenous communities and all others involved with diabetes prevention. KSDPP trains a significant number of Indigenous people in diabetes prevention intervention and research activities.
Updated Holiday Hours: KSDPP will be closed the weeks of December 25-29 and January 1-5, 2024. We will reopen on Monday January 8, 2024.
