Community and Adult Enhancement Programs
Vision: Empower community members to make informed decisions about personal health choices through promising practices and evidenced based programs, access to care, and information regarding healthy behaviors. Some our current adult focused programs include:
Diabetes Education Empowerment Program
The Midwest Latino Health Research, Training and Policy Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago developed the Diabetes Education Empowerment Program (DEEP) in English and Spanish as an educational curriculum designed to engage community residents in self-management practices for prevention and control of diabetes. The DEEP was developed to provide community residents with the tools to better manage their diabetes in order to reduce complications and lead healthier, longer lives based on principles of empowerment and adult education.
