Hi prompter,

It sounds like you have a very specific topic and study group for your project.

The Canadian Diabetes Association is a great source for information about your study group (http://www.diabetes.ca/search/results/? ... &sa=Search) and reading through some of the literature might help you find a questions that is interesting. For example, Are you interested in questions regarding changes in prevalence of diabetes in this group? Are you interested in comparing prevalence of diabetes between different groups living in Canadian or between Indo-Canadians and people living in India?

The website for the Public Health Agency of Canadian might also be a helpful resource because it contains demographic data for different chronic diseases (e.g. type 2 diabetes) at http://204.187.39.30/surveillance/.

I hope that this helps.

Good Luck,
Emily
