Together on Diabetes
AADE is proud to be a partner in Together on Diabetes TM . Together on Diabetes TM was launched by the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation to improve health outcomes of people living with type 2 diabetes in the United States by strengthening patient self-management education, community-based supportive services, and broad-based community mobilization. The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation's mission is to promote health equity, and Together on Diabetes TM specifically targets adult populations disproportionately affected by type 2 diabetes.
The Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation is funding AADE to carry out a multi-year, multi-site research project under the Together on Diabetes TM Initiative. The main goal of AADE's planned project is to implement and evaluate a model for delivery of integrated diabetes self-management education and support (DSMES) to high disparity populations utilizing a team consisting of diabetes educators and patient supporters.
AADE will provide updates on this webpage as the project progresses.
AADE previously received support from Together on Diabetes TM for a project investigating integration of diabetes self-management education into patient centered medical homes. Information on that project can be found here.
