Academy Award Nominee Helps Native Americans Fight Diabetes

Graham Greene, who was nominated for an Academy Award for his role in Dances with Wolves, knows the toll diabetes takes on Native Americans. In the Physicians Committee’s new ad, now airing at movie theaters, he tells viewers how to harness the power of their plates and reclaim their health by eating vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains.

In the public service announcement, Greene directs viewers to ThePowerPlate.org to learn how diet changes can prevent and treat type 2 diabetes. The site also includes healthful recipes by Native American chef Lois Ellen Frank, Ph.D., and a free online booklet called “Food for Life: Power Plate Resources and Recipes,” which was developed by PCRM in conjunction with the Navajo Nation Special Diabetes Project.

Special thanks to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center and the Institute for American Indian Arts, which have played an important role in the success of this project.
