#1 Kick A1C 

The Kick A1C initiative teaches the community how to begin lowering their A1C level in just 90 days. We host bi-monthly workshops that explain the strategy of how to understand your medical reports, properly read nutrition labels, create nutrition plans for your family on a budget, and cooking demonstrations in an effort to erase Type 2 diabetes.

 

#2 Food Therapy

The Food Therapy initiative teaches the community how to cultivate a better relationship with whole foods through indoor and outdoor gardening. We show the importance and benefits of adopting more of a plant-based lifestyle to erase type 2 diabetes.
