A twelve-month RCT trial in partnership with Feeding South Florida and Continucare Medical Centers, part of Conviva Care Solutions, designed to prove that addressing food insecurity positively impacts health and clinical metrics.
Diabetes Self- Management
A three month program that uses telephonic coaching to reduce uncontrolled A1c values in Humana Medicare members. Certified Diabetes Educators (CDE) set goals with participants and incorporate Healthy Days, food insecurity and loneliness screenings into their coaching sessions.
“Know Your Numbers” education campaign
The Education of Community Resources committee launched a campaign to educate the community on topics such as diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol linking readers with safety net resources in their neighborhood to receive care.

The Nutrition committee promoted educational content around how the community can make better food choices and strengthened ties with the Nutrition and Fitness Taskforce.

The Community Collaboration committee held several ‘Doc in the Neighborhood’ events. Physicians interacted with Broward residents at local restaurants, which allowed for informal conversations to take place around diabetes and high blood pressure.
