Managing diabetes is difficult, the cost of testing strips, insulin, and a diabetes-friendly diet adds up. For those living in less fortunate communities, accessibility and affordability to diabetes supplies may be sparse. However, to better support low income diabetes patients, an initiative to work with community-based organizations across the U.S. has helped to improve the care for these individuals.

Watch how this program has provided a number of areas as they address health care issues for Type 2’s in low income populations, enhance health care provider communication, and raise diabetes risks awareness. Let’s raise awareness to manage diabetes!
