Navajo diabetes program launches new Web site

WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. - The Navajo Nation Special Diabetes Project (NNSDP) has launched its official Web site - nnsdp.org - to the public earlier this month.

The Web site has been a project for the past year for NNSDP with Dillon Day, graphic designer, taking the initiative and working on putting together an impressive design, information and links.

"We're really excited about the Web site for Navajo Special Diabetes Project," said Betti Delrow, NNSDP Acting Program Manager.

"We wanted to provide information about our program, but we also wanted it to be impressive in how we shared our story with the world."

At the review and kick-off gathering at the Window Rock Wellness Center, Delrow said that using modern technology that is available today makes it possible to inform thousands of people about diabetes and the work that goes on every day to educate people so they can prevent it in their lives.

The home page is loaded with motion graphics in pictures and text that shows what Navajo Special Diabetes Project does in combating diabetes on the Navajo Nation. It also provides links to eight service areas that describes the work of the staff in Chinle, Crownpoint, Dilkon, Fort Defiance, Gallup, Kayenta, Shiprock and Tuba City.

Delrow said that she did not want just information about what NNSDP did in each area, but a description of the area that makes it unique with local attractions.

"This not only provides interesting reading, but provides information of why those communities are unique in Navajo history," Delrow said.

Delrow expressed her appreciation to the NNSDP staff who worked on the project and to Realtimesites for their work in making the Web site a reality.
