Our program is devoted to advocacy, awareness and education for our patients and their families to promote physical, financial and emotional well-being. We have designed a culturally competent, community-based program to reach patients outside of the traditional health care setting and maximize patient education. Our model includes free classes that are accessible to the community, a peer-mentoring program for parents and children with diabetes, and regular social activities to support and connect families dealing with a diabetes or other endocrine diagnosis. These efforts put the patient and the family at the center, resulting in improved engagement, satisfaction, and outcomes. Our advocacy efforts at the state and national level engage multiple stakeholders, including lawmakers, organizations such as JDRF and the ADA and representatives from industry to fight for equitable, high quality care for all children with diabetes or endocrine disorders.
