The American College of Preventive Medicine is partnering with the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Black Women’s Health Imperative (BWHI) to support the development of novel approaches in addressing prediabetes among high-risk populations, with a focus on Black and Hispanic women. We are excited to be hosting a virtual session as part of this initiative.
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from three health systems which were awarded grants on how to increase prediabetes awareness, screening, and referrals of patients to diabetes prevention programs that are recognized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These organizations use innovative practice protocols to tear down barriers to health and address prediabetes in high-risk populations.
Attendees will also learn about addressing the social determinants of health within the National Diabetes Prevention Program, evaluating diabetes prevention efforts within healthcare organizations, high-touch coaching to improve engagement of Black and Hispanic women, and the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program.
The virtual session will also feature speakers from the CDC, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, ACPM, AMA, and BWHI. CME/MOC credits are pending for this session. There is no cost for this session.
