Project IMPACT: Diabetes
Project IMPACT: Diabetes is the first national diabetes self-management program conducted by the American Pharmacists Association (APhA) Foundation that is improving the health of people in 25 communities disproportionately affected by diabetes.
For the first time, community and university-affiliated pharmacies, self-insured employers, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), public departments of health and free clinics are providing care to people who would otherwise not have access to quality diabetes care.
Patients participating in Project IMPACT: Diabetes include people who may be poverty-stricken, uninsured, under-insured or homeless and are working together with health care teams that include pharmacists to understand their diabetes, set goals, stay on track and learn the steps they need to take to control of their disease and live healthier lives.
Conducted in partnership with the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation’s Together on Diabetes initiative, the APhA Foundation provides participating communities with tools, resources, guidance and support to facilitate local success. Learn more about the project by viewing the press materials below:
