Do It for Them! But for You, Too.

Read more about the friendship of Raquel, Lourdes and Elisa and learn how they stay healthy in a fotonovela from the National Diabetes Education Program. A fotonovela tells a story through photos and words.
Do It for Them! But for You, Too (¡Hazlo por ellos! Pero por ti también.) presents the three women’s stories in English and Spanish in the same book. Their story includes happiness, hard work—and encounters with diabetes.

During Hispanic Heritage Month, talk to your family about whether there is a history of diabetes. Then check out the fotonovela to learn more about how to prevent type 2 diabetes and how to manage diabetes if you have the condition.
