In this article posted by the CDC, insight is given on the rate of diabetes amongst the

American Indian and Alaska Native population in the United States. The article explains the

imbalance in these two ethnicities in relation to the number of diabetes cases. The article

provides resources and solutions to help cease the alarming numbers of diabetes cases that are

prevalent in these races.

The CDCs article focuses largely on the numbers of people in these two communities

affected by diabetes. The inclusion of statistics on the population who have diabetes provides

factual information for people who are of American Indian and Alaskan American descent to

better understand their diagnosis and compare them to the national averages for others with a

similar situation.

This article was helpful because it was clear and reliable. The statistics provided me with

strong factual evidence to support my proposal and create a connection between myself and the

audience. This source was very easy to implement into the essay because of its credibility and

breakdown of the statistics for a specific group of people.

2000. Epidemiology/Health Services/Psychosocial Research. Retrieved April 19, 2017.

In this journal written by a variety of PHDs, statistical information on the number of

American adults living in the nation with the condition of prediabetes is discussed. This journal

provides insight on how obesity, lack of exercise, and poor dietary choices are causing the

number of diabetes cases in America to annually rise at an exponential rate.


This journal focuses on the number of diabetes cases that is continuously rising in the

United States. It provides information on research methods that were used to poll the number of

Americans living with diabetes at the start of the twentieth century and the projected increase

this number is expected to see in coming years.

This article was included in my essay because it was very direct and provided me with

statistical evidence to back up my writing. The authors of the journal also added a sense of

credibility to the writing. This journal had quotes that directly supported my proposal in the

Rogerian essay.
