Diabetes self-management program sustainability the focus of $3.2M grant

For people living with diabetes or at risk of developing it, education on how to self-manage the condition is an essential part of their care. Improved knowledge and self-care behavior, along with better clinical outcomes, quality of life, use of primary and preventive services and lower costs are well-documented upshots of this intervention.

Under a five-year, $3.2 million grant from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, a U-M team will partner with a network of 21 churches in Detroit and Flint, Mich., to help develop sustainable, responsive diabetes support programs that offer a new approach to addressing diabetes-related disparities in underserved communities.
