BEATING DIABETES ONE STROKE AT A TIME
Åmerican Indians from South Dakota, Washington and California, and South End Rowing Club (San Francisco) support swimmers, celebrate the completion of their Oct. 19, 2015 swim from Alcatraz Island to the SERC. The swim was the last event of the annual PATHSTAR Alcatraz Swim Week (Oct. 11-19) in San Francisco. The eight-day event is a component of a year-round program to encourage healthy eating and a stay-active lifestyle among American Indians and Alaska Natives who have the highest rates of Type 2 diabetes in the United States, according to the Indian Health Service (IHS).
