WEBINAR: Diabetes Lunch and Learn Series: Diabetes Self-Management Best Practices and Resources [Session Three]

Individuals served by federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) across the country routinely experience the strain of limited healthcare access due to geographic, financial or cultural barriers. The added pressures of social isolation and job insecurity during the pandemic magnified the struggle for those trying to manage a chronic health condition.

According to the National Association for Community Health Centers, diabetes is almost twice as prevalent among patients of an FQHC compared to the 11 percent of the general United States population. By expanding telemedicine services and improving care management planning, FQHCs are working to reduce the negative impact of missed appointments and lapses in treatment for those living with diabetes.

Lindsey Karlson, director of quality improvement for the Community HealthCare Association of the Dakotas, gathered diabetes content experts to address diabetes initiatives, treatment guidelines, and care planning. “This four-part series will provide relevant updates, actionable information and resources to primary care teams as they celebrate National Diabetes Awareness Month and work to ensure patients receive high-quality preventative and chronic care.
