Upcoming health promotion initiative
In the coming year, we will be codesigning a project with national partners that uses community health workers (promotores) to deliver diabetes prevention education, community development and clinical compliance assistance. Recent efforts around the world have shown that this model offers greater opportunities for disseminating knowledge and ensuring treatment compliance. The CKP believes that the community development facet is central to the long term efficacy of the other two activities.
We anticipate that the pilot project will take place in Fullerton, California. More details will be posted here as soon as they become available.
