  • Family Health Network of Central New York, Inc. Expanding the Chronic Care Model for Patients with Diabetes in Central New York Priority Area: Improving Diabetes Prevention $250,912

    According to the Family Health Network of Central New York (FHN), a multisite, federally qualified health center in Cortland County, more people with diabetes in Cortland County die of complications related to diabetes than in other parts of the State. This region of the State also has the third-lowest reported daily self-monitoring of blood glucose and the fifth-lowest reported daily foot self-check among members of the New York Diabetes Coalition. In January 2008, NYSHealth awarded FHN a grant to expand its existing diabetes program that was launched in 2006 to include more care teams and locations in Cortland County. NYSHealth funded this project through its 2007 Setting the Standard: Advancing Best Practices in Diabetes Management request for proposals.

  • Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Health Center Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Health Center Diabetes Management Initiative Priority Area: Improving Diabetes Prevention $214,210

    Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Health Center (MLK) serves a predominantly vulnerable population of more than 668,300 people in the central and south Bronx. Diabetes has reached epidemic proportions among these residents, with 11% to 17% of adults reporting having diabetes—a rate that is significantly higher than the overall New York City rate of 9% and the national goal of under 2.5%. Uncontrolled diabetes contributes to a number of health complications: increased risk for heart disease and stroke, end-stage renal disease, blindness, and amputations. In January 2008, NYSHealth awarded MLK a grant to standardize diabetes care across its ambulatory care clinics’ internal and family medicine departments, integrate community health workers (CHWs) into its treatment plan for patients with diabetes, and reduce diabetes-related complications. NYSHealth funded this project through its 2007 Setting the Standard: Advancing Best Practices in Diabetes Management request for proposals.

  • Charles B. Wang Community Health Center Chinatown Diabetes ACTION (Accelerating Collaboration To Improve Health Outcomes Now) Priority Area: Improving Diabetes Prevention $230,000

    Diabetes is a growing epidemic. In New York, the prevalence rate is higher in Asian communities, particularly among adults born in South Asia. With proper management, diabetes can be controlled; however, medically underserved and disadvantaged groups, such as Asian Americans, often have difficulty managing the disease. With support from NYSHealth, Charles B. Wang Community Health Center (CBW) formed the Chinatown Diabetes Accelerating Collaboration to Improve Health Outcomes Now (ACTION) to further improve its care for its patients with diabetes. This initiative has allowed CBW to build a foundation for continued sustainability of diabetes management activities. This project was funded under NYSHealth’s 2007 Setting the Standard: Advancing Best Practices in Diabetes Management request for proposals.
