Status: Current

Grant Start: 09/30/2021

Grant End: 09/26/2026

This program’s objective is to utilize quasi-experimental pretest-posttest design that evaluates the effectiveness of Family Model Diabetes Self-Management Education (F-DSME) when delivered in a group setting in Faith Based Organizations. The F-DSME has shown to be effective when delivered in patients’ homes, and the proposed program will allow us to evaluate the F-DSME’s effectiveness in a Faith Based Organization setting.
