Diabetes and the Latino Community

Katrina Nayeli Soto Martinez

"There's an old phrase that says that we are what we sow, maybe the opposite is also true and we eat what we are. If we want to really make an impact in our Latino community, we need to understand that it takes more than used to provide information, sometimes the how, and to whom that information is the lever is more than important than the word." - Karina Nayeli Soto, RD, Yumlish’s lead Dietitian.
