New Fotonovela for Hispanic/Latina Women at Risk for Diabetes

 NDEP’s new publication, Fotonovela: Do it for them! But also for yourself, helps Hispanic/Latina women at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes and their families. The visually attractive and engaging story – told in both English and Spanish – uses role models to demonstrate how women can reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes through increased physical activity, making healthy food choices, and weight loss. This format is especially effective for people with low literacy. You can use this fotonovela to:

  • Encourage healthy behaviors.
  • Teach steps toward positive choices.
  • Support face-to-face education by lay-health workers.
  • Reinforce clinical recommendations.
  • Initiate discussion among a group or at meetings.
  • Encourage self-identification of risk factors.
  • Raise awareness.
  • Support community education outreach.
