Description:The HHS Office of Minority Health will offer funding for an initiative to test and disseminate models/protocols that use a theoretically-based family-centered approach to promote the management and prevention of Type 2 diabetes in adults. Implementation of models/protocols may be delivered by and/or with the assistance of community health workers and/or community-based organizations to ensure cultural and linguistically appropriate delivery of services and sustainability. Funded projects will employ a strong theoretical framework to foster replicability, specifying community factors and resources that enable sustainability. Models/protocols will: (1) Describe the roles of family in the intervention, provide detailed family-based topics to be embedded in interventions, assess the quality and extent of family participation necessary for positive diabetes markers and health outcomes for persons with diabetes and family members; (2) Delineate how the model(s) takes into account and is (are) tailored to cultural factors/Social Determinants Of Health that may affect the adoption of self-management activities and behaviors associated with diabetes prevention; and (3) Identify lifestyle modifications and community supports (e.g., sustainable resources/institutions for physical activity and nutrition) that build and reinforce behavioral changes conducive to diabetes control and prevention that may be strengthened through reciprocal influence. BACKGROUND: This initiative is based on well documented racial and ethnic disparities in diabetes.According to the National Diabetes Statistics Report, 2020 (CDC, 2020) prevalence of diagnosed diabetes is highest among American Indians/Alaska Natives (14.7%), people of Hispanic origin (12.5%), and non- Hispanic blacks (11.7%), followed by non-Hispanic Asians (9.2%) and non-Hispanic whites (7.5%).Involving family members in diabetes self-care and prevention interventions is thought to positively influence patients' diabetes outcomes. However, it is unclear how family involvement operates in Type 2 diabetes interventions and what factors can best affect patient and family members' health outcomes in different racial and ethnic communities.
