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.
