Fall 2012 Update

Director's NoteThe Director

Diseases don’t care about national borders, and neither do treatments or cures. The U.S., India, and China, among other countries, have seen increasing rates of type 2 diabetes. Just as African Americans of sub-Saharan descent face disproportionally high rates of kidney disease, so too do counterparts in ancestral lands.
