Preparing a Healthy, Delicious Meal
With diabetes prevalent among Native Americans, AARP Kansas set out to not only call attention to the problem, but also to do something about it. That’s why AARP Kansas is working with the American Association of Indian Physicians (AAIP) to sponsor cooking classes for members of the four federally recognized indigenous tribes in Kansas (e.g., Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska, Kickapoo Nation of Kansas, Sac and Fox Nation, and Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation). The classes are held in November in conjunction with Native American Heritage Month and Diabetes Awareness Month.
