Abstract

Many patients with diabetes do not have access to clinical care or medications, resulting in cases of undiagnosed diabetes or uncontrolled diabetes, especially in patients of low socioeconomic status. Given these considerations, new strategies are needed to control the rampant growth of diabetes and prevent new cases. This article discusses effective strategies for improving the management of diabetes in underserved populations, with special reference to the Juanita J. Craft Diabetes Health and Wellness Institute, a unique partnership between a large, urban integrated health care system, the City of Dallas, and a South Dallas community.
