This two-year study is funded by the Ira and Ineva Reilly Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment and the Morgridge Center for Public Service. The objective is to integrate Peers LEAD into Healthy Living with Diabetes (a widely disseminated diabetes self-management education program), using a community-engaged approach and an evaluation to document outcomes.

This project will produce a culturally tailored curriculum that can be used broadly across social service and community organizations, faith-based organizations, and federally qualified health centers committed to improving diabetes self-management.

This project will gather and incorporate key stakeholders’ input in the current and future adoption of Peers LEAD+HLWD into community organizations, health system and/or practices, and implement and measure the outcomes of Peers LEAD+HLWD to improve medication adherence and hemoglobin A1c.
