ABOUT SHRI KRISHNA NIDHI FOUNDATION

Shri Krishna Nidhi (SKN) Foundation is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to promote total wellness of the person and community through education. In various populations, including the South Asian diaspora, there are radical health disparities in access to care, service utilization and quality, and outcomes. Alongside evidence of chronic disease burdens in heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and cancer, there is also a poorer understanding of disease prevention in culturally isolated community groups. Lifestyle modification and aggressive compliance with medical treatment is the key to a healthier lifestyle, leading to the prevention of many chronic illnesses. This is accomplished through limiting risk factor development through education.
