Asian Americans (AAs), Native Hawaiians (NHs), and Pacific Islanders (PIs) are one of the fastest-growing groups in the United States. In 2019 alone, health centers served over 1.3 million AA, NH, and PI patients. There are unique distinctions among AA, NH, and PI subgroups that are critical to understanding how to effectively address diabetes prevention.
During this live webinar, speakers discussed the complexity of diabetes disparities in the AA, NH, and PI communities. Speakers also discussed quality improvement strategies that positively influence health behaviors and health-seeking practices amongst AA, NH, and PI patients.
- To increase knowledge regarding the health challenges and disparities for AA, NH, and PI populations with respect to diabetes and prediabetes
- To identify culturally and linguistically responsive quality improvement (QI) strategies that influence health behaviors and health-seeking practices among AA, NH, and PI populations in diabetes prevention.
- To foster discussion regarding QI strategies and resources that target AA, NH, and PI patients with prediabetes.
Health centers, Primary Care Associations (PCAs), Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCN), and community organizations interested and/or invested in diabetes prevention for AAs, NHs, and PIs.
