Peers and Community Health Workers (CHWs): The Key Ingredient for Diabetes Prevention and Control Programs

More than 37 million people in the United States, or 11.3% of the population, have diabetes, and 96 million adults, or 38% of the population, have prediabetes. Certain races/ethnicity, age, and income groups show a higher prevalence of diabetes which may be related to social risk factors and other health conditions. As peers to their communities, CHWs bring a unique skill set that allows them to educate patients and adapt strategies to address patients' diabetes challenges.  MHP Salud and the Corporation for Supportive Housing collaborated on this resource that explores the roles of Community Health Workers (CHWs)/Peer Specialists in diabetes prevention and control programs.

We’ve used over 35 years of our expertise in the CHW profession to create and find high quality resources for CHWs and individuals working in CHW programs.

Community Health Workers , community members and health professionals review all materials prior to use and distribution. Each item is tested for literacy level and relevance to the populations MHP Salud serves. Although many of our resources were developed with Latino communities in mind, the majority of our them can be used to support any underserved community. MHP Salud also identifies appropriate materials and resources from other organizations and maintains a list of these resources and contact information.
