Diabetes prevalence in American Indian and Alaska Native populations in the Northwest is greater than 1.5 times that of non-Hispanic whites (BRFSS, 2006-2012). Despite the high prevalence, access to specialists in Indian Health Service, Tribal and Urban clinics is limited. Our aim is to provide comprehensive information, resources and expertise to integrate evidence-based treatment for type 1 and type 2 diabetes, optimize blood sugar control in tribal communities with holistic, culturally appropriate care, improve patient outcomes and improve quality of life.
All IHS, Tribal and Urban clinics are invited to attend and participate. We welcome you to submit a case presentation form and/or join the teleECHO clinic. The 1 hour long virtual clinic includes an opportunity to present cases, receive recommendations from specialists and peers, engage in a didactic session and become part of a learning community. Together we can make a difference by ensuring that our people are receiving the care they need, when they need it, in their own community.
When: Launching May 9, the 1 hour virtual clinics will take place the second Thursday of every month at 12pm PST.
