Diabetes: A Family Matter

About This Website

Diabetes: A Family Matter

The website for this program has been divided into several areas:

The various sections of the website have different kinds of information available. The community section has information about the Appalachian region; the family section has information about providing family-focused care for those living with diabetes; and the program section is where you will find information about various groups doing work with health promotion and diabetes prevention throughout the 420 counties of the Appalachian region.

The toolkit section is the place where you will find specific ideas about the Diabetes: A Family Matter program. You will also find a wide range of culturally sensitive materials and activities that can be used by diabetes educators and other health professionals as they create local programs. Materials are available to be downloaded free from this site.

A unique aspect of the Diabetes: A Family Matter website is the inclusion of a social networking site is a place to connect with others who are living with diabetes. It is also a place where diabetes and health educators and other health professionals can share ideas about how they are using this program and toolkit where they live. It is also a place where family and friends of those living with diabetes gain support and talk to others that might be facing similar challenges. The communicate section of the website is a place to share successful things being done in your community and learn new ideas from others.

Additionally, you will find research reports about diabetes in the Appalachian region, some information about diabetes, and weblinks to many sites where you can gain access to information and resources that will assist you in answering many questions you might have. Spend some time looking around the site to familiarize yourself with all that you will find here.
