Living with diabetes can be challenging, especially for Asian immigrants who may face language and cultural barriers to accessing healthcare services. In many cases, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have higher rates of diabetes and related complications compared to other ethnic groups. To address these disparities, the Shri Krishna Nidhi (SKN) Foundation has established the SKN South Asian Diabetes Center at Saint Peter’s University Hospital which aims to provide a comprehensive care center that caters to the needs of all South Asians.
