NDORI's 2023 VJ Canizaro, MD Health Summit
Diabetes and Obesity
1 out of 4 people do not know they have diabetes
And 1 out of 4 have pre-diabetes. Diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death and is the leading cause of kidney failure and lower limb amputations.
40% of Mississippians are Obese
Obesity can lead to other major life-threatening conditions such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, kidney disease, diabetes, and cancer.
15.3% of people in Mississippi experience food insecurity
Mississippi has some of the worst health outcomes in the US which has been correlated to highly underserved populations.
Mr. Joseph C. Canizaro, Founder of NDORI
