Diabetes Continuum of Care: Using Behavioral Health and Substance Use Disorder Integration to Address Older Adults with Cognitive Impairments and Diabetes
Diabetes affects more than 30 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 medically underserved racial and ethnic minority populations. In addition to higher prevalence, ethnic and racial minority patients with diabetes have higher mortality and higher rates of diabetic complications.
To combat and continue the national conversation around diabetes, 13 National Cooperative Agreement (NCA) organizations have partnered to create a four-part national learning webinar series to engage health centers, Primary Care Associations (PCAs), and Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs) to increase foundation knowledge of effective strategies to prevent, treat, and manage diabetes among special and vulnerable Health Center Program patients.
Webinar #2 Tuesday, April 9, 2019 11 am-12:30 pm PT / 1pm-2:30pm CT / 2pm-3:30pm ET
Learning Objectives: TBA
Intended Audience: Health center staff from clinical & non-clinical perspectives and from all levels of leadership; Primary Care Associations; and Health Center Controlled Networks.
NCA Partners: – AAPCHO – Fenway Health – National Center for Equitable Care for Elders – National Center for Health and Public Housing
