Diabetes Action Plan

Today is World Diabetes Day. Join us to increase awareness about diabetes and its complications.

We believe it’s important to highlight the good work of health centers to address diabetes care and management.

Harrisonburg Community Health Center serves a large immigrant population with a high percentage of non-English speakers in the Harrisonburg, VA, area. The health center had been working to improve its diabetes measure, but they only realized what might be possible after analyzing their data during a special diabetes targeted HRSA technical assistance site visit and developing a diabetes action plan. Find out how they reduced their uncontrolled or untested A1C measure from 39% to 31% in a year.   

It took a team approach and diabetes champions to make lasting change. Together we can help patients control their diabetes while working to prevent new cases. Visit the Diabetes and Health Centers webpage for resources for your health center’s diabetes action plan.
