Community Diabetes Education Program Evaluation "Code Evaluation"
The study is intended to determine the effectiveness and efficiency of a community diabetes education program administered by a community health worker in a low-cost community clinic. We expect an improvement in overall glycemic control in the experimental group of at least 20%. We also expect to document improvement in diabetes self-management skills, quality of life and an increase in achievement of ADA standards of care4 in the experimental group.
