Since January 2011 the United Hospital Fund has partnered with community-based organizations, health care providers, and others in Washington Heights to test a community control model focused on seniors with diabetes. To date, more than 800 seniors have enrolled in the program, and education and support programs and practices have been established at four senior-serving community-based organizations The new grants will enhance the capacity of these four organizations to provide diabetes-related activities and embed the identification, engagement, and monitoring of clients who are seniors with diabetes as part of the organizations’ regular operations. The grant to NewYork-Presbyterian will support programming work to retrieve utilization data on each consenting participant for program evaluation.
