Ngati and Healthy diabetes prevention project posters

Ngati and Healthy, the 2006 Whanau Ora Award supreme winner and a 2006 Health Innovation Award finalist, is a collaborative community intervention between Ngati Porou Hauora and the Edgar National Centre for Diabetes and Obesity Research (now EDOR).

The project aimed to reduce the incidence of insulin resistance in the short term, and type 2 diabetes in the long term. Implementation of the diabetes prevention community intervention began in 2004.
