Case Study #1 - Kahnawake Schools Diabetes Prevention Project

Kahnawake Schools Diabetes Prevention Project

In Quebec, Canada, community groups and researchers participated in a network using social movement approaches for the Kahnawake Schools Diabetes Prevention Project. In the early phase of the social movement, the network supported capacity building and collaboration of the community members. As the movement evolved, the network served to strengthen the alliances amongst the community members and their shared decision-making. It also supported the program’s expansion to more children. At the conclusion of the project, the network supported the emerging leadership of the community partners (Tremblay et al., 2018).
