This video has Voice overs/Duration 21.11.43/ Play Video on Right

The Many Faces of Diabetes takes a heart-felt look at diabetes and the effects it has on each person's life.  It is the second in a series of films about diabetes with in the Hispanic Community.  In this video we show how diabetes is cross cultural and the harshness of the disease.

The HHP creates educational and documentary videos by and for the local Hispanic community.  The videos are used by the health promoters in their in-home educational visits and in local hospitals and clinics.  They are also shown at local film festivals.

HHP creates education materials to be used in conjunction with the videos during home visits and in the clinic.

They create posters and flyers to be used during Health Conferences to teach community members and Health Care providers about the research being done by Hispanic Health Projects team members.


These films were supported by Idaho Diabetes Prevention and Control Program Grant No. U32/CCU022691-03 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC).  Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the CDC.  
Costs are available from the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.
