The Bigger Picture


The Bigger Picture is a collaboration between Youth Speaks, and the University of California, San Francisco Center for Vulnerable Populations  designed to combat the rising epidemic of Type 2 Diabetes by empowering youth to change the conversation about the disease, and work to change the social and environmental factors that have led to its spread.
We aim to inspire young people to challenge and name the institutional, environmental and social causes of Type 2 Diabetes. It is our hope that by raising their voice, taking action and joining the conversation they will inevitably alter the trajectory of the disease, and provide youth with a virtual platform, and real life performance opportunities for their stories to be heard.
