From the Frontlines of The South Texas Diabetes Epidemic
The South Texas border region is victim to many social ills. Largely defined by poverty, corruption, narco and human trafficking, this forgotten part of Texas is facing a threat greater than all the others combined. A threat so deeply rooted in the community that it is on the verge of becoming commonplace.
The impacts and human toll of this threat will be catastrophic for the community and the health care system that serves it. Diabetes and its primary cause obesity are on track to devastate generations of Americans. The Centers for Disease Control estimate by the year 2050 close to 30% of the US population will suffer from this silent killer.
