Diabetes: A Family Matter

Diabetes and Family

Family is at the core of the project of Diabetes: A Family Matter. By family, we mean both the traditional sense of immediate and extended family, but also community in general.

The Family section of Diabetes: A Family Matter provides some of the academic framework behind the mission of this project, describing the unique focus on family and community.

Much of this information is aimed towards community organizers and health care providers, but the insights within the sub-sections can be of benefit to all.

What is available in the Family section?
