Diabetes Needs Assessment

A Regional Summary 2017

To more fully understand the impact of diabetes in the region, the Diabetes Institute conducted a needs assessment in partnership with the Ohio University Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs.  In early 2016, the institute was awarded an Ohio University Innovation Strategy planning grant to fund the assessment for an eight county region in Southeastern Ohio and West Virginia. The results will guide the strategic direction of the Diabetes Institute as well as diabetes prevention, education, and healthcare initiatives in the region.

Funding provided by the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, Ohio University Innovation Strategy, Ohio University Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs (with support from the Appalachian New Economy Partnership), and the Ohio University Diabetes Institute.
