Through a cooperative agreement with the CDC, the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE) is working with a network of partners, including the National Center for Farmworker Health (NCFH), to scale the National Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) to rural communities across the country while engaging priority populations such as Latinos at increased risk for type 2 diabetes melleitus (T2DM). During the NACHC Conference for Agricultural Worker Health, AADE, NCFH, and the Sea Mar Community Health Center will be conducting a session where participants will receive practical guidance in clinical and community-based strategies that activate the National DPP and address the complex issues of prediabetes, and the T2DM prevention, through a proven social determinants-informed intervention. Be sure to register for this session to better understand this initiative and learn ways to apply the discussed strategies: Health Equity in Diabetes Prevention: Improving Access for Migratory and Seasonal Agricultural Workers.
