Quality Center Projects
Improve Diabetes Care in Health Centers
Building Capacity in Federally Qualified Health Centers
A free lifestyle change program, launched by NACHC’s Quality Center. Supported through funds from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), this pilot is designed to improve the impact of diabetes prevention and control efforts with the unique use of technology and at-home patient care tools, in combination with lifestyle coaching offered by trained health center staff. The program follows a tailored Centers for Disease Control (CDC) approved curriculum that focuses on healthy eating, physical activity, and stress management for people at-risk or with diabetes. It incorporates a whole-person approach to make the skills and resources necessary to improve health accessible to both patients and their families.
