KIPDA Concept Mapping Presentation: Diabetes


Published on

The Kentuckiana Regional Planning and Development Agency (KIPDA) has been awarded a 5 year, 2.5 million dollar grant by the Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention. This grant is part of the National Program to Eliminate Diabetes-Related Disparities in Vulnerable Populations.

The project includes the formation of the KIPDA Rural Diabetes Coalition, a collaborative of people from Bullitt, Henry, and Shelby Counties, KIPDA, and the University of Louisville, Kent School of Social Work. Diabetes has no boundaries; a unified coalition will search for solutions to managing type II diabetes in the counties of Bullitt, Henry, and Shelby.

KIPDA is excited to partner with the Kent School of Social work who will provide guidance in program development and evidence based evaluation of the project. The grant project goals will identify barriers to proper health care and proper nutrition, decrease obesity and smoking in older adults (50+) who have diabetes in Bullitt, Henry, and Shelby Counties. We hope to accomplish this through initiatives developed through the KIPDA Rural Diabetes Coalition, such as, education, health fairs and other community activities specifically designed for the target counties, based on research done by the University of Louisville, community partners, and KIPDA.
