The CRST Youth Diabetes Prevention Program focuses on diabetes prevention by providing case management and follow-up for all identified high risk youth. The program staff completes annual school screenings for overweight, obesity, pre-diabetes to identify the high risk youth. The program's target population are the students in grades kindergarten thru 12th grade at the five of the area schools: CEB, Dupree, Takini, Tiospaye Topa, and Windswept Academy. Our goals are to identify youth with overweight, obesity, pre-diabetes, and provide education to improve healthy eating and physical activity among the youth. The CRST Youth Diabetes Prevention Program staff is preventing diabetes in our youth and benefiting our communities on Cheyenne River by providing consistent diabetes prevention education, nutrition education, nutrition consultation/counseling, physical fitness activities, mobile unit services, encouragement and lifestyle coaching to our program clients and their families as well as all who take the opportunity to participate in the scheduled activities offered.
