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.
This year’s national learning series is focused on co-morbidities associated with diabetes (e.g., oral health, behavioral health, substance abuse disorders, obesity, and social determinants of health). This series complements HRSA’s working draft of the “Diabetes Clinical Change Package” (to be published this year). For general information, visit
