A new theory of geographical analysis--sociospatial knowledge networks--provides a framework for understanding the social and spatial locations of a community's health knowledge and beliefs. This theory is guiding an ethnographic study of health beliefs, knowledge, and knowledge networks in a diverse rural community at high risk for type-2 diabetes. Results will enable development of culturally sensitive prevention and intervention activities. (Contains 23 references.) (SV)
