AAPCHO’s diabetes program aims to eliminate health disparities associated with diabetes by mobilizing and assisting local coalitions in their efforts to implement community-based interventions that reduce diabetes risk factors among AA&NHOPIs. AAPCHO’s coalition partners include CHCs, local businesses, community- and faith-based organizations, and government agencies that address diabetes-related disparities through policy, social and environmental changes.
