Control

Diabetes Education and counseling is done at the participant's home, in office, community centers, Elder Center, health screenings and health fairs. Diet counseling by registered dietitian Sari Catt-Miller. Foot care education and exams are done in office by Dr. Rodney Stapp.

 

Monthly we have a podiatry clinic for Comanche's with diabetes. All participants seen in the podiatry clinic are by appointment only.

 

The Diabetes Awareness program delivers to home bound clients, handicapped and to people without transportation. Diabetes Testing Supplies are mailed to Clients.

Prevention

Exercise classes, walking clubs, water aerobics classes, weight control clubs, children's activities such as day Camps; Fall Break, Spring Break, Christmas Break, and Summer Break are held to provide diabetes education for our Comanche children.

 

Camps and field trips are with the assistance of other Comanche Nation Programs. We collaborate with various tribal and local communities.
