Module 2: Diabetes Program Models
Different program models can be implemented to improve diabetes care and reduce the burden of diabetes in rural
areas. The goals of diabetes programs may vary depending on the target population's needs and the available
resources in a given community. Programs may focus on diabetes prevention, education, self-management, or other
strategies. Evidence-based model programs can be offered in a variety of settings, including healthcare systems,
community locations, schools, churches and other faith-based locations, homes, and worksites.
To learn how to identify and adapt interventions, see Developing a Rural
Community Health Program in the Rural Community Health Toolkit.
This toolkit identifies six program models for diabetes prevention and management. Some rural diabetes programs
integrate aspects of multiple program models.
