Resource Summary: This Facebook Live session reviewed behavioral interventions that incorporate promising practices for public housing residents to manage diabetes and its complications.
Resource Details: Public housing residents have worse health than the general population including chronic diseases such as diabetes. Knowledge of which specific populations within public housing residents have chronic conditions is essential for health centers to implement efficient health promotion programs. In additions, adults living in communities with limited access to healthy foods or safe places to exercise can be at an increased risk for diabetes complications.
