Sansum Diabetes Research Institute researchers measured diabetes and heart disease risk among almost 600 Hispanic/Latino adults living in Santa Barbara. They compared their findings with the general U.S. population. Overall the researchers found a high burden of cardiovascular disease and diabetes as well as lack of insurance in Hispanic/Latino adults in Santa Barbara. Programs need to be put in place to reduce these risks.
