Do you work in chronic disease prevention or treatment or in a community agency that provides services to underserved populations? Then please join us at noon on Tuesday, August 7 to learn about the Prevention Services Initiative model, an innovative program being piloted in Connecticut to integrate community and clinical approaches for more effective prevention and management of two chronic diseases: diabetes and asthma.


Learning Objectives:

  • Define the Prevention Service Initiative (PSI)
