Advancing School Partnerships to Address Diabetes Risk Factors in Elementary School Children

Mar 03, 2020  05:00 PM  EST

What does connecting health centers with schools make possible for children at risk of Type 2 diabetes?

The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium and the School-Based Health Alliance are convening this learning collaborative to assist health centers that collaborate with an elementary school(s) to enhance their work by providing targeted interventions for students with pre-diabetic indicators or school-wide interventions to prevent diabetes. The target audience for this learning collaborative is:  

  • Health centers with an established collaboration with an elementary school(s)
  • PCA staff who provide assistance to health centers that seek to collaborate with elementary schools in preventing diabetes

Through virtual learning sessions and optional coaching, participants in this learning collaborative will learn: how to use health and education data (including social determinants of health data) to determine the most appropriate intervention to bring to their collaborating school; essential elements of evidence-based programs that address pre-diabetic risk factors in elementary school-aged children; and four programs for potential use by their health center—including a telehealth-based program: Kid POWER (KiPOW!),  iAmHealthy, Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do It! (MEND), and We Can!


Health Care Providers, Health Center Staff and Administration (CEs will be provided)

Registration for this Learning Collaborative is now closed.
