Asian American (AA) populations face unique challenges with respect to Type 2 Diabetes. When the AA populations are compared to other racial/ethnic groups, they appear to have one of the lowest rates of diabetes. However, when the AA populations are disaggregated, specific subgroups have significantly higher rates of diabetes compared to white people and other racial/ethnic groups. Research shows that diabetes screening is a challenge for AA populations that impact this hidden disparity.
Come join this Learning Collaborative (LC) to gain in-depth knowledge about diabetes and screening for AA populations. During this LC, clinicians, health center staff, and AAPCHO facilitators will provide context and data from a national perspective. Participants will have the opportunity to engage to share strategies, challenges, and successes regarding AA populations and diabetes screening.
The LC consists of four 90-minute sessions with the following topics:
- Session 1 (3/8): Overview of Diabetes Prevalence Among AA Populations
- Session 2 (3/15): Diabetes Screening Guidelines for AA Populations
- Session 3 (3/22): Implementing Diabetes Screening Protocols for AA Populations at Health Centers
- Session 4 (3/29): Direct and Indirect Implications of Screening Protocols
After this learning collaborative, participants will be able to:
- Increase knowledge regarding the health challenges and disparities for AA populations with respect to diabetes.
- Learn the diabetes screening guidelines as it pertains to AA populations.
- Identify appropriate screening protocols for AA patients at their health centers.
- Understand the direct and indirect implications of implementing screening protocols for AA populations.
***Please note that daylight savings begins after session 1***
