Special Diabetes Program for Indians: Fighting Diabetes in Urban AI/AN Communities Fact Sheet from UIHI
The Urban Indian Health Institute recently developed a fact sheet describing the impact of the Special Diabetes Program for Indians (SDPI) on Urban Indian Health Organizations (UIHOs) and sharing findings from 10 years of Diabetes Audit data across the UIHOs. Since the inception of the SDPI, urban AI/ANs have experienced marked improvements in important diabetes outcomes like blood sugar control and cholesterol levels. SDPI is needed for urban AI/AN communities to continue to make clinical improvements and increase access to quality and culturally appropriate diabetes care.
Find the SDPI Fact Sheet online on the UIHI website.
