Diabetes is a disease in which blood glucose levels are above normal. Most of the food we eat is turned into glucose, or sugar, for our bodies to use for energy. The pancreas, an organ that lies near the stomach, makes a hormone called insulin to help glucose get into the cells of our bodies. When you have diabetes, your body either doesn't make enough insulin or can't use its own insulin as well as it should. This causes sugar to build up in your blood.
Diabetes can cause serious health complications including heart disease, blindness, kidney failure, and lower-extremity amputations. Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States.

The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and the Latin American Studies Program at Ithaca College are co-sponsoring a free screening of the film "Polvo" (Guatemala, 2012) on Tuesday Nov. 3rd at 4pm in Friends 308. This film is part of the LAS series on Central America. Feel free to join us and please spread the word.
Synopsis: "Juan is obsessed by the death of his father, who was “disappeared” by the Guatemalan military during the country’s civil war. He knows who his father’s informant was, and engages in petty acts of revenge against this man. When a filmmaker arrives in the village to make a documentary about the search for remains of the disappeared, Juan and his mother Delfina are given a chance at achieving some sort of resolution, in this sometimes painful, yet tender testament to the act of not forgetting." (from http://www.ttfilmfestival.com/film-synopsis/dust-2/)
