Cross sectional survey (2012/13) conducted with Beardy's and Okemasis' Cree Nation and Montreal Lake Cree Nation involved 580 households and 1570 adult participants. Found that residential school attendance and cultural disruption were not predictive of diabetes, while those experiencing the highest level of racism had low prevalence. Authors suggest that the latter finding may be the result of increased interaction with off-reserve society.
