East Oakland Boxing Association and DASH Collaboration

 

Project Description:

 

Together with EOBA, DASH educators work with over 150 mostly Spanish speaking diverse residents of East Oakland’s 98th avenue. DASH ran two sessions of diabetes ed on basics of management, carb recognition, symptom awareness and three guest speakers with diabetes, two of which are Junior Boxers. In the afternoon, DASH ran diabetes math and awareness obstacles plus soccer, football, wiffleball and other fun activities.

During the school year, DASH and EOBA look to further engage their youth with DASH activities in order to reduce the risk of high blood sugars and increase the quality of life these kids.
