Project IMPACT: Diabetes

About the Participants

The Participants

Project IMPACT: Diabetes took root in 25 diverse communities in 17 states across the United States. 

Participating organizations included community and university-affiliated pharmacies, self-insured employers, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FHQCs), and free clinics.

Participating patients range from the homeless to farm workers to school teachers and more. Target patient populations were identified based on the following criteria:

  • Geographic areas with a high incidence of diabetes
  • Patients with sub-optimal hemoglobin A1C and other outcomes
  • Patients with limited access to quality diabetes care
  • Communities with socioeconomic challenges and other factors that impact patient access to care.


About the Communities

Each Project IMPACT community consists of unique local partners who come together with the goal of improving the health of people with diabetes. These partners are located in a single geography and care for a defined patient population. 

About the Experts

The APhA Foundation Research Staff along with three selected Community Champions oversee the design, implementation and management of the project.
