    Domestic violence can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. Human trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act. 10 percent of American women will be raped by intimate partners in their lifetime, and intimate partners, and every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide. Recognizing key indicators of domestic violence and human trafficking is the first step in identifying persons at risk and provide the mental and physical support they need before it is too late. Join us for this webinar, which will provide an overview of the public health issues and the programs provided by two health centers in the United States.

  • Diabetes Self-Management Education and Support

    Additional Information
    National Center for Health in Public Housing

    By the most recent estimates, 30.3 million people in the U.S. have diabetes. An estimated 23.1 million have been diagnosed with diabetes and 7.2 million are believed to be living with undiagnosed diabetes. At the same time, 84.1 million people are at increased risk for type 2 diabetes. Thus, more than 114 million Americans are at risk for developing the devastating complications of diabetes. Diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES) is a critical element of care for all people with diabetes. DSMES is the ongoing process of facilitating the knowledge, skills, and ability necessary for diabetes self-care, as well as activities that assist a person in implementing and sustaining the behaviors needed to manage his or her condition on an ongoing basis, beyond or outside of formal self-management training.
