Kang’s Testimonial of the At-Risk, First Steps Program

by Theresa on January 4, 2012

Dance Out Diabetes was awarded an Aetna Foundation grant aimed at increasing access to care for the at-risk community of Bayview Hunters Point in San Francisco. In this video, you will hear from Kang, one of our regular participants who was not a dancer, but learned to enjoy dancing for the health of it.

The entire transcript is also posted here: How has Dance Out Diabetes helped you? OK. Before the dance, I only do the walking in the fields and on the street. But after (joining in) the dance (Out Diabetes), I started to join in other dances like the Zumba class. Also, I started going to the fitness center in the fitness room on the 2nd floor (at Bayview Hunters Point Y). I never have done that before. I have been doing fitness at least four times a week. In other words, the diabetes dances inspire me to study other (types of) exercise. Wonderful. Thank you! You’re welcome.
