The Centers for Disease Control (2010) estimates that by the year 2050, as many as 1 in 3 adults could have diabetes if current trends continue. Cameron County, Texas, where 30 percent of the population suffers from the disease, is the focus of Diabetesville, USA, a new documentary film produced by Michael Seringer. Diabetesville, USA, paints a grim portrait of the diabetes epidemic in South Texas and seeks to answer several questions about the present and future of diabetes in the nation and the ability of the healthcare system to meet the needs of children and adults with diabetes – or prevent it altogether. The cast features several UTHSC faculty and staff members including Dr. Ralph DeFronzo and presents the research of Dr. Susan Fisher-Hoch, Dr. Joseph McCormick, and others with the University of Texas Houston School of Public Health and University of Texas at Brownsville, to explore extreme obesity and uncontrolled diabetes in the U.S.-Mexico border region. Two copies of Diabetesville, USA are now available for checkout at both the Briscoe and Ramirez Libraries. Visit the library catalog record for specific locations and availability.
