This talk examines the racializing science of genetic epidemiology alongside a community based urban renewal effort in the US. Both purport to address chronic disease but through radically divergent propositions. The gene based approach, now largely a case study in the history of the human genome project, illustrates the means for configuring Mexican bodies as, among other things, diabetes prone. The place based urban renewal effort promises to address the social determinants of disease. Assessing both requires a critical optimism into the making and unmaking of the diabetic Mexican.
