The Healthy Harvest Fun Walk/5K Run & Diabetes Expo raises funds and awareness for the programs of the DHWI, a collaboration between Baylor Health Care System and the City of Dallas, to provide access to quality health care and disease prevention services to southern Dallas. Residents in surrounding ZIP codes are three-times more likely to die from diabetes compared to those living in Dallas. Prior to the DHWI's opening, the area lacked services that are essential to living healthy, such as access to doctors' offices or hospitals, healthy food options and grocery stores, exercise programs, and affordable transportation.
DHWI Mission Statement: The Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute (DHWI) exists to serve all people by providing personalized health and wellness through exemplary care, education and research as a Christian minisrty of healing.
The DHWI is Southern Dallas' first and only facility addressing health and wellness needs related to diabetes. Staffed by a team including a physician, nurses, care coordinators and diabetes education specialists, the DHWI offers a simple yet innovative approach to combating diabetes and has woven itself into the culture of this community to impact societal change.
