Diabetes and Asian Americans: The Need to Screen at 23

Resource Topic: Diabetes
Resource Subtopic: Asian Americans, Social Determinants of Health, Quality Improvement, Programs and Services, Special and Vulnerable Populations, Policy and Advocacy, Research and Data

Resource Type: Archived Webinar

Primary Audience: Clinicians

Language: English

Developed by: Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (See other resources developed by this organization.)

Resource Summary: This webinar provides an overview of the American Diabetes Association’s 2015 diabetes screening guidelines for Asian Americans and the science that’s behind them. Epidemiologic studies have shown that standard body mass index (BMI) cut point of 25 is inappropriate for defining diabetes risk in Asian Americans. Consequently, the American Diabetes Association (ADA), National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have acknowledged the need to screen Asian Americans at a BMI cut point of 23 to identify those with or at risk for future diabetes.It also highlights the Screen at 23 Campaign and resources available to support health centers in preventing and diagnosing diabetes for Asian Americans.

Resource Details: This webinar shares the data result from research conducted by Dr. Maria Rosario (Happy) Araneta on Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AA&NHPIs) and diabetes. The data shows that diabetes (diagnosed and undiagnosed) prevalence for Asian Americans ranked the highest when compared to other racial/ethnic groups such as African-Americans, Caucasians, and Hispanics. Given the high prevalence, there is an increased need for early detection and prevention efforts. Epidemiologic studies have shown that standard body mass index (BMI) cut point of 25 is inappropriate for defining diabetes risk in Asian Americans. Consequently, the American Diabetes Association (ADA), National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have acknowledged the need to screen Asian Americans at a BMI cut point of 23 to identify those with or at risk for future diabetes.

Diabetes in Special and Vulnerable Populations: A National Learning Series - Part 1
Diabetes in Special and Vulnerable Populations: A National Learning Series Kickoff

Resource Topic: Diabetes
Resource Subtopic: Patient-Centered Health Outcomes, Quality Improvement, Programs and Services, Special and Vulnerable Populations, Policy and Advocacy, Research and Data

Resource Type: Archived Webinar

Primary Audience: Clinicians

Language: English

Developed by: Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (See other resources developed by this organization.)

Resource Summary: This webinar kicks off a national learning series on effective strategies to prevent, treat, and manage diabetes among special and vulnerable health center program patients. In a collaboration between AAPCHO and Migrant Clinicians Network (MCN), this webinar explores important lessons learned from the National Diabetes Collaborative which made impressive gains in improving diabetes care for the most vulnerable. Panelist discussed how to incorporate some of the most important lessons of the collaborative into current efforts to diagnose, treat and manage diabetes most effectively.

Resource Details: This webinar is the first of a four part national series titled Diabetes in Special and Vulnerable Populations: A National Learning Series focused on diabetes and those affected by it. It is a collaboration between multiple National Cooperative Agreements (NCAs) organizations to combine efforts to target diabetes in special and vulnerable populations. This kick off webinar introduces the national training series aimed to engage health centers, Primary Care Associations (PCAs), and Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs) to increase knowledge of effective strategies to prevent, treat, and manage diabetes among special and vulnerable health center program patients.

Diabetes in Special and Vulnerable Populations: A National Learning Series - Part 2
Housing Instability and Diabetes Outcomes in Agricultural Workers and LGBT Communities

Resource Topic: Diabetes
Resource Subtopic: Patient-Centered Health Outcomes, Quality Improvement, Programs and Services, Special and Vulnerable Populations, Policy and Advocacy, Research and Data

Resource Type: Archived Webinar

Primary Audience: Clinicians

Language: English

Developed by: Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (See other resources developed by this organization.)

Resource Summary: This webinar focuses on the social determinants of health (SDOH) that affects vulnerable patients, like housing instability, complicate efforts to self-manage diabetes. Some of the communities at highest risk for developing diabetes are farmworkers, LGBT-identified individuals and those experiencing homelessness. Individuals from these populations are more vulnerable due to challenges unique to their racial/social groups such as lack of access to affordable housing and healthy food, lack of stable housing due to constant mobility, limited English proficiency and other social determinants of health. These factors impact their ability to obtain health insurance, access affordable health care, and follow medication adherence.

Resource Details: This webinar is the second of a four part national series titled Diabetes in Special and Vulnerable Populations: A National Learning Series focused specifically on addressing diabetes and those affected by it. This session focuses on identifying the social determinants of health, how they impact chronic disease management, and the challenges health centers faced in addressing diabetes for vulnerable mobile communities such as agricultural workers, LGBT-identified individuals, and individuals experiencing homelessness. It is a collaboration between AAPCHO, Corporation for Supportive Housing (CPS), Migrant Clinicians Network (MCN), Farmworker Justice (FJ), National Center for Farmworker Health (NCFH), Health Outreach Partner (HOP), National LGBT Center for Health Education (Fenway)

Diabetes in Special and Vulnerable Populations: A National Learning Series - Part 3
Health Center Strategies for Diabetes Screening and Prevention for Children, Adults, and the Elderly

Resource Topic: Diabetes
Resource Subtopic: Patient-Centered Health Outcomes, Quality Improvement, Programs and Services, Special and Vulnerable Populations, Policy and Advocacy, Research and Data

Resource Type: Archived Webinar

Primary Audience: Clinicians

Language: English

Developed by: Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (See other resources developed by this organization.)

Resource Summary: This webinar focuses on how one of the main ways diabetic patients access care is primarily through health centers. With Type I and Type II diabetes on the rise, many health centers struggle to properly diagnose patients of all ages with diabetes. This webinar explores diabetes prevention and care strategies across the lifespan. Presenters will discuss standards of care in the screening and prevention for children, adults, and the elderly, sharing experiences from the field. Presenters also engages participants around case examples of successful diabetes prevention programs, pediatric, adult, and geriatric clinical guidelines for prevention and screening, Finally, presenters connects participant with resources to outreach opportunities and tools they can apply and adapt for their own health centers. It is a collaboration between AAPCHO, National Nurse-Led Care Consortium (NNCC), School-Based Health Alliance (SBHA), and the National Center for Equitable Care for the Elderly (ECE).

Resource Details: This webinar is the third of a four part national series titled Diabetes in Special and Vulnerable Populations: A National Learning Series focused specifically on addressing diabetes and those affected by it. This webinar describes the many challenges health centers face in treating diabetic patients of different ages. It focuses on the unique health barriers specific to each age group for children, adults and seniors. These age-specific barriers differs in terms of what risk factors to look out for, best practices for screening, and approaches for treatment and care management. It also share successful programs and strategies health centers have implemented to address these age-specific challenges.
