Fort Belknap Tribes to close diabetes program
The Fort Belknap Indian Community of Montana will be shutting down a diabetes prevention program after running out of money.

The tribe operated the program with an Indian Health Service grant. The money ran out on September 30 and the cycle for the next round of grants is only just beginning.

The IHS said the program has been successful and shutting it down could harm efforts to prevent diabetes on the reservation. Employees don't know if they will be rehired if the tribe wins another grant.
