Resource Summary: This webinar focuses on identifying physiological, social, and economic determinants of health (SDOH) critical for addressing diabetes for Asian Americans, agricultural workers, and individuals experiencing homelessness populations. It is important to understand these SDOH because it informs the ways health centers provide proper care for these vulnerable populations. The introductory webinar allows health center clinical and non-clinical staff to facilitate discussions and hear from a clinical focused expert on interventions and strategies for diabetic patients with HbA1c greater than 9. The discussions from this webinar informs future learning sessions in this collaborative.
Resource Details: This webinar is the first of two learning sessions as part of a National Diabetes Learning Collaborative for health centers serving Asian Americans, agricultural workers, and individuals experiencing homelessness. It aims to share clinical and non-clinical strategies for diabetes management with vulnerable populations to decrease the percentage of patients with HbA1c greater than 9. It is a collaboration between AAPCHO, Health Outreach Partners (HOP), and National Health Care for the Homeless (NHCHC). This webinar provides the opportunity for learning participants (health center clinical and non-clinical staff) to introduce themselves and learn about current interventions and strategies from a clinical focused expert perspective.
