Proposed Project

A Comprehensive Assessment of the National Program to Eliminate Diabetes Related Health Disparities in Vulnerable Populations—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

In an effort to reduce diabetes-related disparities, CDC's Division of Diabetes Translation's (DDT) aims to concentrate efforts where the greatest impact can be achieved for populations with the greatest burden or risk of diabetes. DDT established the National Program to Eliminate Diabetes Related Health Disparities in Vulnerable Populations (the “VP Program”) to coordinate and integrate efforts in high risk communities involving CDC, national organizations, and community partners.

Through the VP Program, six national organizations received cooperative agreements to assist a total of 18 communities with planning, implementing, and evaluating community-based diabetes control programs. Each VP awardee is required to use the community change framework to guide their work with three communities. CDC proposes to collect information to learn more about how the community change approach is working in communities that are significantly impacted by factors that influence the disproportionate burden of diabetes in vulnerable populations, such as low income, limited education, limited access to health care, and a physical environment that does not promote health. Semi-structured telephone interviews will be conducted with key personnel associated with each national organization (VP awardee) and each community site. One project coordinator and one consultant at each of the six VP grantee organizations (n=12) will be asked to participate in an interview of 1.5 hours in length. In addition, an interview of approximately 1.5 hours will be conducted with one community partner or one coalition member at each community site (n=18) and one site coordinator at each community site (n=18) over a two-month period. Data collection, management, and analysis will be conducted by a contractor working on behalf of CDC.

The interviews will allow CDC to explore capacity building and support strategies used by the awardees to facilitate community change, and provide insight into the facilitators and barriers experienced by the program stakeholders in addressing diabetes in their communities.

OMB approval is requested for one year. Participation in the interviews is voluntary and there are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 72.
