Diabetes Continuum of Care: Creating Your Best Team to Support Chronic Disease Management & Patient Care Session 1

Mar 09, 2023  02:00 PM  EST | Past Webinars |

Diabetes affects more than 34 million people in the United States. Multi-tiered efforts to prevent, treat and manage diabetes are critical in reducing the burden of diabetes, particularly for special and vulnerable populations, which have unique characteristics that affect culturally and linguistically competent health care access and utilization. According to 2018 Uniform Data System (UDS), diabetes poses a unique challenge for the HRSA Health Center Program because 1 of 7 patients has diabetes and nearly 1 in 3 of those has uncontrolled diabetes.

To elevate the national conversation around diabetes, 14 National Training and Technical Assistance Partner (NTTAP) organizations formed the Special and Vulnerable Populations Diabetes Task Force to engage health centers, Primary Care Associations (PCAs), and Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs) to increase knowledge of effective strategies that address diabetes among people experiencing homelessness, residents of public housing, migratory and seasonal agricultural workers, school-aged children, older adults, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, LGBTQIA+ people, and other health center patients.

Presentation Learning Objectives:

1. Demonstrate key components of successful community engagement to address diabetes amongst special and vulnerable populations
2. Identify ways to adapt and strengthen community engagement strategies to address diabetes during public health emergencies (i.e. COVID-19)
3. Highlight tools and resources to assess readiness for fostering community engagement

NTTAP Collaborating Partners:

  • Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO)
  • Migrant Clinicians Network (MCN)
  • National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC)
