JOIN a Diabetes or Diabetes Prevention Core Group in Mid-August !!!

In collaboration with the City of Minneapolis, residents within the Backyard will be able to join a Diabetes/Diabetes Prevention (DDP) Family, Friends and Neighbors (FFN) group aimed at lifestyle changes for dealing with or preventing diabetes.

There will be 4 Diabetes/Diabetes Prevention Family, Friends, and Neighbors (DDP-FFN) core groups, with each one conducted for:

16 weeks of core classes

8 monthly post core follow-up group classes

Each core group will be hosted by a BYI Resident Recruiter/Host: Mr. Ray Thompson and Mr. Willie Younger of the Anchor Family *CHAT; Ms. Candis McKelvy of Growing the Backyard CHAT; and Miski Abdulle and Amged Yussef of the Project SELF CHAT. The Out in the Backyard CHAT and Phillips Neighborhood Clinic will be instrumental in the recruitment and referral of potential participants. There will also be a DPP Hybrid Group hosted at the Midtown Global Market.   The BYI Resource Center Staff will recruit from visitors of the BYI Resource Center and the Midtown Global Market for the Hybrid Group class. The difference between the FFN and Hybrid groups is the Hybrid participants may not be all families, friends, or neighbors to one another.  All participants in any of the groups will be screened for eligibility within the criteria established.  The first classes will begin in mid-August and other classes beginning in succession (creating a ripple affect). The Backyard DDP-FFN and Hybrid Program will be presented here in the Backyard through a contracted partnership with the Minneapolis Health Department. The Project is under the leadership of the Cultural Wellness Center, the BYI’s Lead Agency with assistance provide by Allina Health Community Benefits and Engagement.
