Alliance to Reduce Disparities in Diabetes


The Alliance aims to help decrease health care disparities and enhance the quality of health care by improving diabetes prevention and management services primarily in underserved low-income communities for people of color. We see the processes by which this impact is achieved as equal in importance to the outcomes realized. Through the five year experience, the Alliance will not only have a direct impact on clinical outcomes and the lives of underserved people, we will also learn what works, what doesn’t work, and how community collaboration and organizational change can sustain the most promising interventions. 

Formal evaluation findings are reported:

  • Across the five grantee projects (RTI cross-site evaluation)
  • Individually for each grantee project
  • Quantitative and qualitative findings for both the cross-site and individual grantee evaluations

In addition, outcomes will be reported in the following areas:

  • Patient stories
  • Lessons Learned
  • Sustained systems change efforts achieved by the five sites, e.g., changes in health care systems providing diabetes care, permanent employment of outreach staff or clinic staff, organizational policy changes, and so on).
