COVID-19 has highlighted the disproportionate impact that preconditions like type 2 diabetes are having on the most vulnerable in our county and around the country. Approximately, 88 million American adults-more than 1 in 3-have prediabetes, according to the CDC. Of those with prediabetes, more than 84% don't know they have it.
THE EIGHT is in partnership with Preventive Lifestyle Assistance Network (PLAN) a New York-based provider of the CDC’s evidence-based National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP).
November is National Diabetes Month and we are currently seeking volunteers to assist with the launch of the "Check Your Risk" Diabetes Awareness Challenge (CYR).
Our goal is to have 1,000,000 Americans determine their risk for developing type 2 diabetes using a one-minute survey.
We are soliciting virtual volunteers to assist with a wide variety of tasks.
"Wellness--helping people improve their quality of life through the implementation of the 8 Dimensions of being-well; (Emotional, Environmental, Financial, Intellectual, Occupational, Physical, Social and Spiritual.) Our objectives are being met through the innovative and strategic placement of "Pop-Up" service clinics throughout the Inland Empire, by providing onsite access help to create a platform for Youth, Women and People with "diverse-abilities" and introduce whole-wellness options.
THE EIGHT believes in a world in which ALL people are treated with respect and dignity, as well as valued and rewarded fairly for their skills, talents and labor. We also believe in the extraordinary power of the arts and technology as a unifying language of communication and a vehicle of integration for organic learning and creative entrepreneurship.
We partner with community stakeholders and virtual wellness enthusiasts in order to connect Life changing Opportunities and People in Need.
THE EIGHT logo reflects the 8 dimensions of Wellness as a wheel. The wellness wheel shows how the dimensions work together. Like a bike wheel, if all of the spokes or dimensions are functioning at optimal levels, the wheel rolls along smoothly. If however, one of the spokes or dimensions becomes weak or if the tire loses air, the wheel will run off course.
THE EIGHT programs/aspects and activities are part of the whole--they are integrated, creative efforts that put forth a cohesive, community effort that not only educate and fights poverty but obesity and disease as well. THE EIGHT is a "Wellness Hub"--it is multi-dimensional and holistic, encompassing occupational, intellectual, social, financial, physical, emotional, the environment and spiritual well-being.
