Latino Diabetes Initiative - Community Outreach

Joslin's Latino Diabetes Initiative extends its presence within the local community, particularly the medically underserved in the Greater Boston area. We do this by providing diabetes education, screening and health advocacy through community-based partnerships.

Staff members attend local health fairs—including many Latino health fairs and cultural festivals—and offer educational and screening services through churches, schools and other community-based organizations.

In addition, the Latino Diabetes Initiative plays an active role in local advocacy initiatives, community consortiums and cultural competence training programs.

Get Involved!

Lifestyle changes (getting regular exercise and eating healthy foods) have a greater possibility of reducing the risk of developing diabetes than the use of medications.
