NACHW’s Focus On Diabetes Training

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) with support from VSP® Vision Care and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. has launched the Focus on Diabetes™ (FOD) initiative to focus on the crucial role annual comprehensive eye exams play in the early detection, intervention, and prevention of eye disease and vision loss caused by diabetes. The ADA has partnered with NACHW to develop a training around this initiative and train CHWs on diabetes and how it relates to eye health.

This training will be 90 minutes with a 30 minute Q&A period at the end. Everyone who attends the session and completes the final survey will receive a certificate of completion from NACHW. In addition, NACHW is holding a raffle for all attendees of five $50 gift cards. 

More about Focus on Diabetes: 

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) with support from VSP® Vision Care and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. has launched the Focus on Diabetes™ (FOD) initiative to focus on the crucial role annual comprehensive eye exams play in the early detection, intervention, and prevention of eye disease and vision loss caused by diabetes. By targeting the gaps in the most prevalent comorbidities associated with diabetes, this campaign helps to bend the curve in preventing and reducing the risk of diabetes-related eye disease. 

The FOD initiative supports health care providers in educating their patients both at-risk and living with diabetes on the importance of annual comprehensive eye exams. FOD increases patients’ engagement in the early detection, intervention and prevention of eye disease and vision loss caused by diabetes.
