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.
